Addin additional files update

Hello,

I would like to update an addin due to a change on additional files. The additional files are not located in the same folder. When I open the Addin the path to the original additional files is lost (only file's path already in addin zip appear). Does anyone know if there is a way to refresh easily the additional files without browsing again to each one?

Thanks & rgds

Denis

Re: Addin additional files update

Hi Denis,

For security and other reasons the path to the original files isn't recorded in the JMP Add-in. When you open an add-in in the add-in builder it's using the files that are included in the add-in.

If you need to update a number of these files it may be easiest to change the extension from .jmpaddin to .zip and use WinZip or equivalent to update the files and then rename it back to .jmpaddin.

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for your reply. I thought to use this way using a script (.bat or else) to update the zip according to an external configuration file.
