    Error creating file Message (application.initialWindow.content)

    npuetz

      Hi,

       

      i´ve been playing around with the Packager and have encountered a problem wehn compiling the app. Sometimes it works and sometimes it won´t, giving me the following message:

       

       

      "Error creating file Message

       

      An attribute or element contains an invalid value in the application descriptor file. (application.installFolder)."

       

      i am pretty clueless what do do with that error. Can anyone help me?

          Is there any chance you had first tried it as an AIR app, then changed to iPhone? I'm guessing so, because application.installFolder is one of the things that gets created if you do that.

           

          So, open the descriptor file in a text editor (it's the file called "appname-app.xml", where "appname" would be the same as the FLA name), and look for the part that says this:

           

          <installFolder>here</installFolder>

           

          where "here" may be empty, or some other text. Select and delete that part, and do a save. Then in Flash do a Publish from the file menu.

           

          Everything should be ok then, but if you get more errors, just see what it's complaining about and delete the part it doesn't like from the descriptor file.
