Hello for all!

We are upgrading a Database with customizations, for them, we create new objects 90000 with the data of the customer transfer it before, and then delete the objects without tables, open Database with BC on premise, when the process finished, we put on the Database the objects of version on premise and execute process of upgrade toolkit, until this process without problems, I get open database with windows client and web client, but when I make my first extension in visual code, the symbols doesn't download, the error is the next:

    Have to done "Task 14: Publish and install/upgrade extensions" ?
    "Publish-NAVApp -ServerInstance <ServerInstanceName> -Path <SymbolFilePath> -PackageType SymbolsOnly" ?
    For help, do not use PM, but use forum instead, perhaps other people have the same question, or better answers.

    Yes, this things I did, but... in the part of "finsql.exe Command=generatesymbolreference, Database="<MyDatabaseName>", ServerName=<DatabaseServerName>\<DatabaseInstance>", apparently the process didn't works because I didn't find navcommandresult.txt or naverrorlog.txt . This is the sentence that I executed : "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central\140\RoleTailored Client\finsql.exe Command=generatesymbolreference, Database="Demo Database NAV (10-0)", ServerName=NubBC\Service1"

    run the command in a command prompt, check if error is given, also this can run for quite a while, check task manager for running development enviroment process and wait until it is done
