I am trying to build my library with
Code: Select all
LP_XMLConverter convchecklibrary -format hsf
, and I get
Code: Select all
IDEntryList.dbe:0: error: Could not open the file for reading.
. I search everywhere for IDEntryList.dbe, and can only find this thread talking about it. Thankfully, that solution worked for me. For those with the same issue, download the Library Developer Kit and copy
Code: Select all
to your library root.

For something necessary to build a library, there should be more documentation on IDEntryList.dbe. It should at least have a section in LP_XMLConverter's documentation (the only documentation I can find that mentions it, although only once). A description of the recommended way to use it should be included.

Look, I have never used this option and don't know how to use it

But may be you will need two different directories, one is for the source, and one for the destination so that it can copy the resulted work to.

By the way, I would advise to make the destination folder different from that of source (ie: not located inside the source folder, make it something totally different)
