UICC fails to generate .bml or .rc file

Dec 1, 2010 at 12:07 AM

My apologies if this has been covered somewhere else. I've browsed the discussions but didn't find any solution so here I go:

I followed the tutorial; downloaded the SDK, built and installed the generator, built and added the ribbon.dll to my project (I even created a clean project for testing) but no matter what I end up with the following result in the RibbonGenerator.log file and an error within VS:

2010-12-01 00:52:48 - uicc.exe failed to generate .bml or .rc file!RibbonGenerator.FaildException: uicc.exe failed to generate .bml or .rc file!   at RibbonGenerator.Manager.ConvertXmlToDll(String localizedRibbonXmlFilename)   at RibbonGenerator.Manager.CreateRibbon(Target element)

I'm running on Win7 x64 with VS2010. Initially I tried targeting framework 4.0 but I also tried 3.5 and I've tried to compare my project with the sample projects but cannot find where I go wrong.

 

Thx in advance

Maybe check the log files for more information.

I've been through the RibbonGenerator.log file and got the result I posted. Is there any more log files to dig into? Any specific type of msgs I should be looking for?
