My latest tests were to delete the folder that I uploaded Field to, and try again, uploading the parent and one of the merged projects again. No dice.
Then I used the single source layout for Call_Center, and selected output for both that and Field. No dice. So it isn't even the single source layout that's the problem.
I'm running out of ideas. Thanks.
Are you excluding the merged project from the TOC in your output?
Try the following to troubleshoot: Duplicate your working SSL. In the duplicate, change one thing, generate and check whether it still works. If all goes well, you will find one setting that breaks it. I hope this will help you to identify the problem.
Do you mean am I applying conditional build tags to the merged projects? (no) Or is there some other way I might be "excluding" them that I'm inadvertently applying? (help!)
I tested them in RH11, and they still don't work. I'm going to test some shell projects in RH11 to see if they work - if they do I may need to just recreate the projects in the later version (not a bad idea - when I went from RH9 to RH10 I found I couldn't delete baggage files I'd uploaded in the earlier version, so I've been bracing myself for this all along)
I've worked with merged projects for years, and never encountered this kind of problem before, so it may be that something went corrupt. In multiple projects (...?). Your SSL suggestion is a good one. I'm going to try that if the new RH11 project doesn't work.
Update: Merged projects work again when I create a new project in RH11.
I'm beginning to suspect corruption in some file. We switched servers a month or so ago, and something may have gotten hosed in the transfer, which is may be why the problem affected multiple projects. At any rate, I have a lot of rework to do, recreating every project from scratch, but it's better than the alternative. Thanks
