Manifest Error

I have downloaded the example files and can load the zipped files to my Roku box for testing. However, when I work with the source files and then create a zip file, I get an error saying "Install Failure: No manifest. Invalid package."

This occurs even when I zip a source folder from the examples which I haven't yet changed. I'm using a Mac... is there something incompatible?

Thanks,

Re: Manifest Error

"Every time I mess with the examples and re-zip them. It will not install on my roku. I get a "no manifest found" error even though there is one there. Any ideas? Thanks"

Re: Manifest Error

Thanks, I knew it had to be something really, really simple... and it was!!!!

Makes perfect sense. If you make a zip of the containing folder, then your Roku unit can't find the files (they're all in a folder and it doesn't understand that). So going inside the folder, selecting all and sending to a zip is the way the zip file needs to be saved.

Thanks again...
