I really like working in FDT5 and was eager to try out mobile app development. The first test I did I had no problem, then all of a sudden, any new app was not launching, giving the error:
application descriptor not found
.settings > launchfolder, for my app called “trycompile”, the file
.settings > launch > trycompile.launch. In the working version, FDT had inserted the line:
<stringAttribute key="ADL_DESCRIPTOR_FILE" value="bin/workingapp-app.xml"/>
but this was absent in the non-working file. So I added the following line to that file:
<stringAttribute key="ADL_DESCRIPTOR_FILE" value="bin/trycompile-app.xml"/>
When I added that line, the project worked (both desktop and laptop). Yay for me!
