I recently updated my project (using Codewarrior 7.1.2 Build 11, IDE 5.9.0). Compiled and ran it on one computer, no problems. The update was a change to the project settings (specifically changing the linker file from abc.lcf to another file 123.lcf).
I then ran a synchronize backup to our NAS, went to another computer, opened the project, and the linker was still showing / using abc.lcf. I did this several times do different media and have the same problem.
My backup / sync tool just checks for newer files and overwrites them, it seems this is not enough to detect project changes in codewarrior???
