This bit me in the butt … TWICE!
When using WebDataGen so that you can get a proxy class for an Astoria data service, if you are running under UAC, the output file will NOT get created, however the tool reports that the file was created successfully.
I spent a lot of time trying to find the file or figure out what I was doing wrong.
Then a week later, when it was late at night and I was sick so my brain was a little foggy, I had to create another proxy but totally forgot the pain I had gone through previously. It was an hour before I finally remembered that I had to run the command window as admin.
So word to the wise….and I should probably make a not of this in the forums.
