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.
