Ask questions in the forums

If you still could not find a solution, if you have interesting use cases, if you have custom configurations, and generally if you have any experience that you want to share with others, use the xPack forums, and enter a New Topic in the Windows Build Tools section.

Register a new support ticket only if necessary
