This is an unfortunate result of the test vs. deployment issue that we will be addressing in future releases of Build-A-Board. In order for the NKBF command to work, the KBF file must be in the same folder as MYTSOFT.EXE. When you build a layout referencing another layout, and test (F10) within Build-A-Board, there is absolutely nothing that Build-A-Board will do to find or resolve or link multiple projects together - you must do this manually. For example, if you are working with Project1, and add a key, use the NKBF command, and try to open Project2.KBF, you will need to do the following:
Create and Build the Project2, and then with Windows explorer copy the Project2.KBF from the \Program Files\Build-A-Board\Target\Project2 folder into the \Program Files\Build-A-Board\Target\Project1 folder. Now when you build & test Project1, it will be able to find and load the Project2.KBF file. For deployment (assuming Project1 is the main project), you will also want to copy the Project2.KBF (and any other referenced KBF files) into the MSWIN (or other target) folders.
We have already made plans to automatically update all 2.10 customers to 2.20 when it becomes available, but that will not be until next year some time. You may want to register at http://www.imgpresents.com/register in order to ensure that you get this free upgrade.
