SYMPTOMS

When you run the Appupdater.exe tool that is included in Microsoft TV Foundation Edition 1.7, you receive an error message that is similar to the following:
Could not find a part of the path "path and name of XML file".
Note In this error message, path and name of XML file is a placeholder for the path and file name of the XML file.

CAUSE

This behavior occurs when the global manifest file contains an Application element that has the incorrect path of the XML file or the incorrect file name of the XML file. This global manifest file is passed as an argument to the Appupdater.exe tool.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this behavior, make sure that the Application element in the global manifest file has the correct path and file name of the XML file.

MORE INFORMATION

Steps to reproduce the behavior

  1. Create a global manifest file that contains an incorrect Application element. For example, you have the following correct path that contains no space in the AncientTiles folder name:
    C:\PixelGames\Current\Week1\AncientTiles
    Therefore, create a GM.xml file that contains the following Application element.
    <ApplicationServices>
      <ApplicationService TSI="Games">
         <Application>C:\PixelGames\Current\Week1\Ancient Tiles\AncientTiles.xml</Application> 
      </ApplicationService>
    </ApplicationServices>
    
  2. Type the following command at a command prompt:
    appupdater -i GM.xml http://localhost:1701/AppUpdater/ILApp.asmx
Note After you run this command, you receive the error message that is mentioned in the "Symptoms" section.
