Add-in not loading in catalog if it contains European language character in office 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have one manifest works fine loading from"office 365 app Catalog" site with English character in description and name, but when I add German or any other European characters it stop loading from the catalog; basically it does not render in "My Add-ins" >> "My Organization" apps. it works fine with Word 2013 but does not work with word 2016.

    If I used file share as catalog it loads fine for both 2013 and 2016

    Encoding for the manifest file is "unicode (utf-8 with signature) - codepage 65001"

    I am not sure I will have the same issue when we submit it to "Office Store"

    Anyone else having same issue?

  • Hi,

    Where do you add the characters? After editing the file name or the I could successfully upload and then find the manifest in the Office Add-in-> MY ORGRANIZATION catalog in Word 2016.

    Do you get any error when failing to upload?

    If possible, i suggest you share your manifest with us for testing.
