It is about 4 years ago that I worked on DNN modules. DNN has changed a lot and I have lost touch. I have a hard time catching up.

 

The first problem I have is with the installation through a manifest file. The files in the resources.zip are not found during installation and I get errors as these:

 

Failure File specified in the dnn could not be found in the zip file: - D:\development\Dnn.Platform\Website\Install\Temp\zordp55z\App_LocalResources\AcademicYearsEdit.ascx.resx

Failure File specified in the dnn could not be found in the zip file: - D:\development\Dnn.Platform\Website\Install\Temp\zordp55z\App_LocalResources\AcademicYearsSettings.ascx.resx

Failure File specified in the dnn could not be found in the zip file: - D:\development\Dnn.Platform\Website\Install\Temp\zordp55z\App_LocalResources\AcademicYearsView.ascx.resx

 

 

 

I get this error for all files in Resources.zip. What might I be doing wrong? When I unzip the resources.zip file and drop them in the main zip file, the module installs without complaining and I can debug my code.

 

I tried to attach my manifest file, but this text editor no longer allows attachments, claiming that the Telerik dialogs requires a HTTP handler registration in your web.config file. So I post my manifest file in this message. The fact that view.ascx, edit.ascx and settings.ascx have been renamed is due to the fact that This project will consist of several packages. I had first tried to put the ascx and ascx.cs files in separate folders so I could keep the names, but DNN seems not to like that. So here follows the content of my manifest file:

The resources.zip folder should not be included within the Files component node but rather in a  separate component node of type="ResourceFile" as in the following example:

 

<component type="ResourceFile">
                    <resourceFiles>
                        <basePath>DesktopModules/WESNet_AVGallery</basePath>
                        <resourceFile>
                            <name>Resources.zip</name>
                        </resourceFile>
                    </resourceFiles>
                </component>

Thanks for the advice. I have modified the manifest file accordingly, but the problem persists. I have tried to add the new component at the bottom of the components node, in the middle and now at the top (it shouldn't make a difference, should it?). I have tried to add Resources.zip back as a file component, nothing made a difference. I have tried to check the contents of the Install\temp folder, and I can see that a folder is created, but it disappears in a flash, no time to check the content of the folder.
This is my new manifest file:

When the contents of Resources.zip is unzipped and dumped in the main zip file, installation proceeds normally without errors and I can use the new module.

 

Any other suggestions?

 

Marc.
