Build and Distribute a Product as a Beta release
This task will build a product and publish it as a Beta release using BLT:
build-product-simple-beta %ID_Product% %Version%
%ID_Product% is the ID of the Product
%Version% is the 4-numbers version of your build (ex.: 22.214.171.124). If the version number is not supplied, the current version number set in the Build Specifications of your LabVIEW Project will be used. If a version number is supplied without a Build number (i.e. 1.5.2), the Build number will automatically be set to the Build Number of the last released Product Version incremented by one (example: if you supply %Version% = 1.5.2 and the last released Product Version is 126.96.36.199, the version being built will be 188.8.131.52).
The following actions will be performed (Simple Build):
oBuild your product executable with LabVIEW.
oCompress everything in the build target directory into a single zip archive.
oIf existing, add your splash screen and color scheme configuration to the zip file.
oUpload the zip file on the Product Updates server via FTP.
oGenerate a new Beta product version in BLT with your last change log entries as release notes.
labview-cli.exe --lv-exe "BLT Automation.exe" "build-product-simple-beta 12 184.108.40.206"
This will build the version 220.127.116.11 of the product ID 12 as a Beta release using the Simple Build settings
