error with multiple extensions in package name using api

Postby glaseur » Tue Apr 12, 2011 3:44 pm

I Get an error from the PackagerEngine.Package method when using a package name with multiple extensions, Ex. "Upgrade_To_1.1". Also where can I find the list of all of the PackagerEngine properties (Ex. PACKAGE_DATABASE_NAME) and their correct values?

SQL Packager does not support building executables with a dot in the name (other than the extension). The reason for this is it uses the output file name as the namespace of the assembly, and .NET namespaces can't have dots in them.
