start by Looking for syntax errors etc. in the config.xml file

then if there are none comment out lines one by one to find the problem.

config will show up...

Re: Ripple emulator problem No config.xml file was found at the root of the .zip file Blackberry 10

I just want to confirm, are you referring to the "config.xml file could not be found at the application's root or is malformed XML" message inside of Ripple?

Or do you mean that when you are actually packaging the application, the packaging error states that no config.xml is found in the ZIP?

A screenshot of the exact error would be ideal as there shouldn't be a ZIP file associated with just viewing an application. Ripple also has some quirks in what it considers to be the "root" of the project and that error can be ignored during development, but is an issue if actually happening during packaging.

Your config.xml file is probably invalid.

 

Copy and paste it into this XML Validator. http://www.w3schools.com/xml/xml_validator.asp

 

If there is an error RIpple won't be able to parse it properly.
