File Masks Problem

Hi,

I am trying to use the ZIP action to zip up the source code in a full directory tree of C# Solutions.

THe problem I'm having is that I want to exclude the bin\debug, bin\release and obj folders under a project.

Accordingly, I've got no masks in the Include section, and the following masks in the exclude section:
/Bin*
/Obj*

Unfortunately, the bin and debug and their content folders remain.

Note: I've got Include Subfolders checked.

Any help would be muchly appreciated.

Thanks,
Greg

For directory exclusion in the ZIP Files action, the mask must include the directory path as it would appear in the zip file after the zip operation concludes (i.e., /xyz/Project1/bin*, etc.).

One option would be to specify file masks for the types of files in these folders (i.e., *.dll, *.obj, etc.). Another option would be to first use the Copy Files action to create a folder structure with just the files to be zipped (since its directory include/exclude capabilities do match at all levels when recursing), then ZIP that folder (without exclusions).

This is supported in the Enhanced ZIP Files action in v8.0.
