Can't build

Jul 28, 2016 at 11:49 PM
Can I get someone who is on the project to try and get latest into a new machine or workspace, the code as-is has 2 missing files (GeneratorSource\Lexer.cs and GeneratorSource\Parser.cs) I'm guessing they exist on your machines just not in the repository. Given the missing objects in the babel parser, I'll assume those are partial classes with the missing logic.

If these are supposed to be generated then I just need the instructions on how, the PowerShell scripts only generate DaxFunctions and DaxKeywords files.

Thanks

Solved, for some reason the MPLEX and MPPG compile commands aren't working in VS 2015 (or maybe just my install).

Resolution:
1) Download VS 2010 (not as easy as it sounds task)
2) Download VS 2010 SP1
3) Download VS 2010 SP1 SDK (link on documentation page)
4) Install the above in that order
5) Copy MPLEX.EXE, MPGG.exe and MPLex.frame to the ..\DaxEditor\GeneratorSource folder
6) Open Command prompt and go to the folder ..\DaxEditor\GeneratorSource
7) run MPLEX.exe lexer.lex
8) run MPPG.exe /no-lines /mplex parser.y > parser.cs
9) Compile the app
10) double click the vsix file to install (latest version includes Marco's updates to allow it to work in 2015 (with non json bim files)

Thanks

Interesting, I will try to investigate whether it is not working in VS2015 (maybe it depends on VS2015 edition?)
