HELLO WORLD ISSUES

I have no idea what is wrong but I can't get this "Hello World" app to work.

I continue to get the "Install Failure: No manifest. Invalid package." error.

My folders/files are in the right spot and I DO have a manifest file.

My real issue I guess is I don't know how to save a manifest file CORRECTLY?

I'm using TextEdit. Saved the manifest file with NO EXTENSION. Saved it with ASCII encoding.

Zipped the directory folder but it just won't work for me. All the examples load just fine.

ANY SUGGESTIONS???

Re: HELLO WORLD ISSUES

If you've been following the instructions for the Hello World app in section 7.3 of the Developer Guide, then there's one little detail they forgot to mention: The manifest file must have a blank line (or a comment) at the end, as it ignores lines that don't end in a linefeed character.

Re: HELLO WORLD ISSUES

A missing newline wouldn't cause the "no manifest" error message. My guess based on the fact that the OP claimed to have "zipped the directory folder" is that he did just that, rather than zipping the contents of the folder.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!! That should definitely read more clearly in the directions.
