failure 881 application author does not match debug token author

I'm getting this error trying to install it on my PlayBook. The author in my app's config file matches the author shown on the debug token screen of my tablet.

Have you got the author and authorid set in your blackberry-tablet.xml file?

I just have the author. I'm going off of the Hello World example, but that doesn't show  an author ID.

Ah yes. Forget the bit about the blackberry-tablet file!

 

You've not got an special characters or white space in your author name have you?

I do have white space. It was working this way before I formatted my computer.

Fixed! I had to open bbwp.properties and put in the full path to the debug token.

Strange, it started giving me the same error again today. I tried resetting my PlayBook and deploying a new token, but no success so far.

The problem seems to be with Ripple. I can package and install my app from command line.

 

But in Ripple I choose 'Package & Install'. Ripple says the build succeeded and lights up my PlayBook, but the app doesn't appear.
