Creating Module Packages

Important: The PackageBuilder.exe application must execute from the bin directory of a valid Kentico CMS installation. This allows the native module export to include all database objects, libraries, and file dependencies related to the specified module instance.

The -module command is the only required command-line argument. The following command will produce a NuGet (.nupkg) package identical to one produced by clicking the Create installation package button.

PackageBuilder.exe -module:Acme.Module

In this example, the package Acme.Module_1.0.0.nupkg will be written to the website CMSSiteUtils\Export directory.
