Unspecified error while zipping files
 
Every once in a while, we'll encounter an "Unspecified error" while running a Zip step in VBP 6.2.

The log file shows this:

3/18/2008 6:11:36 PM: Step 'Zip bin to 26' failed


Any ideas?

Not really, but since the problem is sporadic and both the source files and destination ZIP file are on a network share, I would guess that a network hiccup, or possibly a source or destination file getting locked by some other user or service, is a likely cause.

In case of a lock on a file or network connectivity issues, I put a loop around the step to keep trying if it failed. On the first attempt, it gave "Busy, can't enter now."

This went on for about an hour and a half before I logged onto the machine to take a look. Then, I stopped the build, and ran each ZIP step one at a time. The ZIP steps did not have any errors this time, and the rest of the build went as expected. I've never seen the "Busy, can't enter now" message, and was wondering what it is referring to -- VBP being busy, the folder being busy, the DynaZip DLL being busy, or something else.

We haven't seen that one before either. The error message is actually returned by the ZIP component, and the docs indicate this means that a zip action was initiated within the same thread of execution before the last operation completed, which doesn't make a lot of sense, since the build steps are run sequentially.
