Correcting a broken Ant build 

Recent releases of Nsight Tegra have made the following changes: 

Nsight Tegra has its own proprietary build.xml — named nsight_tegra_build.xml — that runs before the build.xml, and sets properties from within Visual Studio’s project properties. There are two reasons for doing this: 

  1. With ANT, the first variable set is the one that is used in both .properties and build.xml files.
  2. Most users' default files come from samples, and already have set properties. This works around options the user may have changed.

To work around this issue and get your forced overrides back in, you would take advantage of these lines that we auto-generate: 

<import file="<path>\nsight_tegra_build_overrides_<config>.xml" optional="true" />
<import file="<path>\nsight_tegra_build_overrides.xml" optional="true" />

The first line allows you to do config-specific overrides; the second line contains shared overrides.

From here, you would set your properties, making sure to get the paths you set up in Visual Studio.

For reference, here is a snip of the actual properties that are overridden.

REGION-BEGIN: The following properties prevent Nsight Tegra from needing to modify user property files. 
Setting them here will ensure they always match Visual Studio and allows users to build without needing to check out version controlled files.-->
<property name="sdk.dir" value="C:\NVPACK\android-sdk-windows" />
<property name="target" value="android-15" />
<property name="source.dir" value="src" />
