Custom commands, for example, Before Build, After Build, etc., are not running. Project builds fine but at the end of the Build Output it says in bold red "Custom command executable not exist".
Created attachment 526 [details]
In this project I set a Custom Command to just echo the Project dir. You can see the error at the end of the build output.
Added the path to the error string to see what the problem was:
Custom command executable '/Users/fejj/Downloads/MemTest/MemTest/echo' does not exist
Yea... that kinda explains it. Although it should fall back to not trying to use the PWD as the executable's home dir.
Will see what I can do.
fixed in git, will be in 2.8.0 final
The MonoDevelop app bundle overrides the $PATH environment variable with a very limited set of values to prevent broken environments from causing problems.
You can work around this by specifying the full path to the custom command executable, e.g. /bin/echo
Side note: If you try it out on MonoDevelop 2.6 it will work. What changed that it would break?
I have a project that is using the sh command to run a shell script which was fine in 2.6 but now in 2.8 it is not running.
"sh ./Build/plist.sh DEV"
Ok. I'll provide the full path from now on just to be safe.
