Manually Add Packages to vipc

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

I got the pro edition of VIPM so that I can easily switch between projects without having to worry so much about dependencies.

 

However I have been creating vipc files but it often seems to miss some dependencies when I scan my projects. In some places I can't explain it (it misses the lavag json library in one project) in others it is a little more understandable (I'm using the Saphir xcontrols and it misses these).

 

Obviously this is a problem but would be easily solved with an option to manually add packages but this doesn't appear to exist. Am I missing something?

 

Cheers,

James

Hi James,

 

I've just updated the How to use VI Package Configurations (VIPC) help document to include some info about how to manually add new packages to a VI Package Configuration file. Basically, there's two ways:

 

You can manually add packages to a VIPC file by dragging & dropping them from the VIPM Main package list into the VI Package Configuration window, as shown below:

Or, you can right-click on the package from the VIPM Main package list and choose Send to Configuration, as shown below:

I hope that helps!

Also, I should mention that there is another helpful tip: "Pin" packages that are manually added. “Pinning” prevents VIPM from removing the package after a Scan Project, if the package is not found as a dependency.
