Subject ant's cab task
Date Fri, 02 Mar 2001 20:04:38 GMT

I am newbie to work with cab files. I am trying to create a cab file using
ant's optional task. The following target I created is working fine when I
create a cab file with small directories. But I tried to create it with many
directories that have subdirectories tried adding lot of files then
it failed with error code 1. 

I am wondering is there any size limitation of cab tool. I am using cab tool
provided by Microsoft in cab-sdk. I tried using cab tool provided my
microsoft in sdk-java. I got the same error.

I am using Ant version 1.3beta3 compiled on February 22 2001, Microsoft (R)
Cabinet Tool - Version 1.00.602.2 (08/14/97)

Am I doing something wrong? Am I using wrong cab tools? 
Any suggestions? 

<target name="cab">
    <cab cabfile=""
	 basedir="${Ipx}" />

verbose output  ...(partly)
