We are deploying a Powerserver 2022 application to a web server. The application uses DLLs. We added in the manifest file as loadmax_cloud.exe.manifest so Windows can associate DLLs with the executable, but we are getting the following error message  The application name is loadmax_cloud. 

---------- Package: Package project of loadmax_cloud (12:28:39)
Checking the configuration information for the publishing...
The external files cannot contain any file (.exe, .xml, manifest file etc.) that has the same name as the application, or the PBD or p-code file to be generated. Error file is loadmax_cloud.exe.manifest.
Failed to publish the installable cloud app.
---------- Finished Package project of loadmax_cloud (12:28:39)

Is there a solution method for this to allow us to include the manifest file?

Hi Jim,

Please note that the external files cannot contain any file that has the same name as the application or the PBD or p-code file to be generated, otherwise, the duplicate name error occurs, you can find this information in the article below. Deploying the application will generate the manifest file automatically, so you get an error when trying to attach the file under the external files page if the file has a duplicate name.
Configure the PowerServer project - - PowerServer 2022 Help (appeon.com)

Could you use the current manifest configuration (PowerServer project -> Client App -> Advanced -> Others -> Manifest Information)? 

If you have to use your own manifest file, you cannot edit the manifest file directly, please refer to the article below to change the file on the web server. Change the External Files - - PowerServer 2022 Help (appeon.com)

Regards, Logan

Hi Logan

Thanks for the fast response - we'd been googling for information without any success.

We've applied external manifest and it's all working fine - many thanks!.
