Hi,

when I try to create a module from a manifest in DNN 9(.0.1) by clicking the "Create New Module" button on the Persona Bar Extensions App, I can select "Manifest" in the "Create Module From" dropdownlist. Next step is to select a Module Folder ("Owner Folder" leaves "<Not Specified>", as the module resides in a folder directly under the DesktopModules folder). And then I should be able to select the manifest (*.dnn) file from the "Resource" dropdownlist, but this one does not fill with values.

Any ideas?

Happy DNNing!
Michael

Well i know this is not supposed to be done but i had to do it, so... here it goes the quick fix:

1. Open the project "Dnn.PersonaBar.Extensions" (only this project. not the entire solution)

2. Add the missing Refences to the project "Dnn.PersonaBar.Extensions" from the Builded solution "DNN.Platform" (dll files inside "Website\bin\")

3. Edit File "Services\ExtensionsController.cs"

- Go to method "GetModuleFiles" and change the switch to "switch ((int)type == 3 ? FileType.Manifest : type)"

4. Edit File "Components\CreateModuleController.cs"

- Go to method "CreateModuleFromManifest" and change 2 things:

1. "createModuleDto.Manifest" to "createModuleDto.FileName"

2. and change the "Path.Combine(..." to "Path.Combine(Globals.ApplicationMapPath, "DesktopModules/" + folder + "/" + createModuleDto.FileName)"
