I am trying to create a simple CICD pipeline for a Python 3.7+ project for Windows, and I am stuck at the beginning.
My workflow file is this:
name: CI on: [push] jobs: build_windows: runs-on: windows-latest steps: - uses: actions/checkout@v2 - name: bootstrap run: tools/windows/bootstrap.bat
And here is my bootstrap.bat file:
curl -L -O https://dist.nuget.org/win-x86-commandline/latest/nuget.exe nuget.exe install python -Version 3.7.6 python.3.7.6\tools\python.exe -m venv venv venv\Scripts\activate.bat echo HELLO
Turns out, the moment the command for activating the environment is run (venv\Scripts\activate.bat), the step finishes and nothing else in the script runs after that point. The line “echo HELLO” is never executed, or at least there is no output after that point. However, the job and workflow are executed successfully. Any idea why is this hapenning?
Thank you for your time.
PS1: I am not using the Python already installed on the VMs because of “reasons”.
PS2: Please excuse my ignorance in case I am doing something really wrong. I haven’t used Windows for many years.
