Seems like you are missing mage:

@ruflin -
I installed the mage, and found a new binary added in the Go bin path, but still I see the same error: :frowning:

C:\Users\Admin\Go\src\\elastic\beats\metricbeat>make package

Error: failed to find in the project's v

I have to confess that most of us develop on OS X and Linux and because of this sometimes the dev tools are not working properly on Windows. But the above more looks like a missing directory which should not be related to the OS. What version did you check out of Github? Are you on master?

Hi @ruflin-
I have cloned @maddin2016 repo (

Its related to the issues 9847 and 10060
Since, the issue is with the Windows-7 32 bit, trying to build the package with the same OS configuration.

I see, perhaps it makes sense to rebase on master as lots of things have changed since January.

That worked; could able to built the package now. Thanks so much !

Any timelines, when this PR could move to the Master ( ?.
So, I can just take the snapshot builds from the Jenkins CI. Thanks !

The PR you linked is from the community. Best ping Martin on it on how it looks from his side priority wise.
