From time to time, I noticed that the name of the manifest file (and others) created by AppGen is missing the name part of file name resulting in name like “.manifest” listed in the Solution Explorer. This seems to happen at random for so long that I cannot remember when or the which version of Clarion started this behavior. This issue also shows up with the version files (cwVersionRes Template) and EXP files.
A quick look points to the %ProjectTarget variable used in Clarion Templates for composing the file names. Unfortunately, my very limited knowledge of templates prevented me from tracing down this issue.
Has anyone seen this issue with their application suddenly have their file names corrupted? Is there a fix or workaround for this?
