    Hi,

    Yes this actually triggered a few errors on our end as well - and the behavior you saw was a result of this (it'll keep retrying until someone takes a look at it). The problem is that one or more paths in your repository are longer than the allowed length - any chance you can reduce filename sizes or unnest the directory hierarchy somehow?

    Best,

    Hi,

    I took a look and it seems like there have been plenty of recent successful builds on the application I was referring to earlier. Did you do something different with those builds since they didn't fail? Otherwise it'd be great if you could let me know the name of the application you're having issues with.

    Best,
    Rune

    Application Name: Sailsgigreg
    I am trying to deploy my sample sails.js application in Appharbor. Was trying with all possible combinations and found that as soon as I include sails module into the repository my build goes into a loop with the mentioned error message.

    Thanks,
    Karthiga Baskaran.

    Ok got it - how are you installing sails by the way? Is it a part of the build process or have you checked it into your repository?

    Also, is it ok if we take a closer look at your code?

    Best,

    Yes, it s checked in to my repository. Sure, you can have a look into the code.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Alright I took a closer look and the problem is indeed the length of the path when the sails module is installed. For instance this file is causing issues:

    C:\appharbor\temp\u5cx33lp.pq1\output\_PublishedWebsites\WebMatrixWebsite\node_modules\sails\node_modules\grunt-contrib-less\node_modules\less\node_modules\request\node_modules\form-data\node_modules\combined-stream\node_modules\delayed-stream\lib\delayed_stream.js

    Windows has a limitation for the fully qualified name of a file to be less than 260 characters. The path above is 265 characters, which causes the issue.

    I wonder if there is some other way to bundle this dependency? We can of course also shorten the path to your application C:\appharbor\temp\u5cx33lp.pq1\output\_PublishedWebsites\WebMatrixWebsite, but it might take a little longer before we can push that update.

    Best,
    Rune

    Thanks Rune for the detailed update. I have updated my application and reduced the mentioned file path characters to around 240, but still I am getting the same loop and the build doesn't happen. Please could you help in checking if any other file path has the same issue.

    Hi,

    Hmm I might be missing something, but it doesn't seem that the location of those files have changed (at least according to the recent commit history on your project https://github.com/karthiga/sailsgigref/blob/master/Sails_Gigreg.cs...).

    By the way, your application seems to have a production connection string to your database in your repository. Since the project is public this is accessible for anyone who checks out your code. You might want to retrieve the connection string information from your application's AppSettings instead.

    Best,
    Rune
