Command line option to prevent setting files to a read-only status during a build

Unread post by julio » Wed Feb 12, 2020 5:42 pm

As I explained on this post (https://helpman.it-authoring.com/viewto ... 34&t=16170), we would like to ask for a way of creating a build without locking all files in a read-only status. We are now using server machines with multiple cores and we would like to take advantage of these cores, thus decreasing the build time.
In TFS, which we use in our company, there is no need to worry about changes in files during a build process, because all files needed for a build are downloaded and used for that build without any changes. I think a new command line option would be enough for this situation.

Thank you.

Hi Julio,

Thanks for posting this. I can't make any promises at the moment, but it is definitely on the list for consideration. 8)
