Could not find a part of the path ... appxmanifest.xml RRS feed

  • Question

  • I moved development machines and I'm using a different user account on this new machine and when I compile the project I get the following error: "Could not find a part of the path ... C:\users\mark\documents...appxmanifest.xml" .

    Well of course on the new machine I don't have account username "mark" , I have an account username of "billy". I can't find a place where this is static wrote. Any idea where I need to change this URI?

  • Hello Mark,

    If you double click the error message, you should be able to navigate to the code which causes this issue. And for your scenario, I think it is better if you can copy the appxmainfest.xml file to a path which will not be changed by different log-on users, and then re-add reference to that .xml file.

  • Hi Mark,

    Looks like some build output is caching the old location and this occurs where the build output of the project is being copied to the new machine. Can you delete the build output from the project directory and retry?
