Hi Sivajan,

I had the same problem in a completely different context: the error is saying that you need to create an explicit <used-compartment> dependency between your custom software component (SC) and the SC where resides.

Proceed as follows:

- locate the SC where resides (you can do this in Developer Studio, browsing the SCs from SAP)

- access your SLD > Software catalog > Software components

- select your custom component

- in the "Dependencies" tab, select BuildTime context

- there, click the "Define Prerequisite..." and add the SAP standard SC you located before: this updates the software catalog with the dependencies... but practically, it does nothing to help you with your current SC... so... more to do!

- access your CMS > Landscape Configurator, track data tab

- select your custom SC

- click the button "View/Edit XML content"

- add <used-compartment> and <variant-mapping> nodes referring to the SAP standard DC

- click "Back"

- save the track data. The system will tell you that you have to perform a restore... please do, although it is not really necessary to proceed

- open your NW Developer Studio and connect to the NWDI server

- you should receive a message telling you that a new development configuration is available. Proceed as instructed (close all open activities, remove the configuration and import the newer one)

- at this stage, you should be able to add the Used DCs dependency (usual process: create a project etc.)

Hope this helps... appreciate if you could award points if it does
