Package Install - Error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

10 August 2005

Issue Description

While attempting to install a sample AnyView IDS package downloaded from the Accountable Software Resource center, the package can be selected successfully in the "Select Package" tab of the AnyView Solution Packager but when one clicks on "Next" the following error is generated:

 

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

 

This error occurs because the package downloaded from the Accountable Software Resource center is a zipped file with extension .zip rather than .avpkg.

 

To avoid this error and to successfully install AnyView IDS packages, one must unzip the files downloaded from the Accountable Software Resource center prior to attempting to install AnyView IDS packages.
