Hi All,

  Invalid application archive - failed to find config.xml


I could observe that all the applications having the same error message while packaging. Can you guys suggest me what should be taken care while doing the same.


Thanks in Advance.

As this appears to be a Web Works question, I think you should ask in the associated forum:

Re: Unable to package Gitbub samples

Which sample are you trying to package?  The ZIP file that you create should contain a config.xml file in its root folder location like this (good):



  • config.xml
  • index.html
  • stuff.js


if you try to ZIP up a folder, it may cause the config.xml file to be saved in the wrong location and missed by the packager, like this (bad): 



  • /foobar
    • config.xml
    • index.html
    • stuff.js
