We are pooling binaries from Artifactory to SourceDir$(Configuration) folder. After the first build of .wixproj project the MSI is created with harvested files. On the next build with new binaries in the folder generation of the MSI is skipped with following reasons:

2>HarvestDirectory:
Skipping target "HarvestDirectory" because all output files are up-to-date with respect to the input files.
Compile:
Skipping target "Compile" because all output files are up-to-date with respect to the input files.
Link:
Skipping target "Link" because all output files are up-to-date with respect to the input files.

<ItemGroup>
    <HarvestDirectory Include="SourceDir\$(Configuration)">
      <PreprocessorVariable>var.HarvestPath</PreprocessorVariable>
      <DirectoryRefId>INSTALLFOLDER</DirectoryRefId>
      <ComponentGroupName>HeatGenerated</ComponentGroupName>
      <SuppressRootDirectory>true</SuppressRootDirectory>
      <SuppressCom>true</SuppressCom>
      <SuppressRegistry>true</SuppressRegistry>
    </HarvestDirectory>
  </ItemGroup>

Please provide answers to the following questions to help us narrow down, reproduce, and fix the problem. Fill out one section and delete the others.

  • Which version of the WiX Toolset Visual Studio Extension are you building with (if any)?

(0.9.21.62588)

  • Which version of .NET are you building with?

(4.6.1)

  • Describe the problem and the steps to reproduce it.

(The target HarvestDirectory is skipped. log in the build says: Skipping target "HarvestDirectory" because all output files are up-to-date with respect to the input files. I assume that there is no detection on files in side of the directory. It is true that directory was not changed even after removing it and creating)

  • Describe the behavior you expected and how it differed from the actual behavior.

(I expect Target will be executed when files in harvest directory are updated, removed or new files are added)

This does not seem to be a bug really.

For the HarvestDirectory target, the inputs are all files in the folder been harvested, and the output is the generated wxs file. Thus, the target will be executed only when there is a file in the folder which is newer than the wxs file.

When you pull the files from the Artifactory, they probably are old files. But hey, you are already abusing the build system - those files are probably older than the sources from which they were created.

As a workaround, you can "touch" all or any of the files you pulled from the Artifactory to update their timestamps.
