Tech Tip: Update Files now Codewarrior Project doesn't compile
Published On: March 7, 2002

Product: Plug-in API

Question: I just updated my Plug-in API files from 6.7 to 6.8 and now my Codewarrior project will no longer compile. I get an error that the API files cannot be found. I haven't moved anything; just replaced what I had.

Answer: If you replace a file that your Codewarrior Project is using, you will also need to replace the file in your project. Codewarrior does not just look at what files are on disk. Internally it does have a link to the file and if you remove or replace a file on disk, Codewarrior will still be looking for the old copy even if a new one is in the same location as the old.
