getting error 'invalid binary file' on app submission


i'm getting an error 'invalid binary file (release.xxx.xml) when trying to submit my app.   i'm assuming there is something wrong with my release.xml file.   which is kind of wierd, because an xml file isn't a binary.  


my release.xml file looks like this:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Release version="">
       <ReleaseNotes>First Release</ReleaseNotes>

Re: getting error 'invalid binary file' on app submission

Are you trying to upload release as a zip-file with xml-description of the release? If I recall it correct, this feature might not be working. Try to upload your release manually, i.e. specify bundle name, OS, supported devices, etc.

Re: getting error 'invalid binary file' on app submission

as far as I'm aware, you configure the config.xml file, and compile. You end up with a bar file, which you use your keys to sign - and you only have the one file to upload (.BAR filetype)
