Source path does not exist:poweredby.png?

So I’m getting this error when trying to build with Phonegap. This particular file is in my project directory, but I’m not actually using it in the program at the moment.

There is no mention of this file in the phonegap config file, and the filename is not referenced anywhere within my code - how can I find out where this reference is so I can deleted it/fix it.

As far as I know, this has only happened since I upgraded to V8 today - but it’s been a long long time since I compiled this code to phonegap - so no idea if I broke it before and the issue would have presented in V7.x.x

I’ve just tried building the app using my old version and it builds correctly… any ideas anyone?

Solved - it was to do with a splash screen. Removed that, and all is good. Hope this helps someone else.

AppStudio 8 has a whole new way of supplying the icons and splashscreens to PhoneGap. Now you supply a single image and AppStudio generates all the variations needed.

  • Sections with <icon lines
  • Sections with <splash lines
  • <gap:splash src=’{splashscreen}’/>
    Or, start fresh by copying this config.xml and adding any other changes you have made.
