Avalache Management Console
Unable to install a software package. Error message "File does not contain Package" or "Install failed package file does not contain a manifest"
This is typically caused by importing very old software packages
Solution / Workaround:
This is resolved by running the package through Package Converter.
Package Converter comes installed with avalanche and is found in the Avalanche install directory (typically C:\Program Files\Wavelink\AvalancheMC called PackageConverter.zip)
Unzip this into a folder of your choosing
Open command prompt and point it to the folder where you unzipped Package Converter
Put the problematic package in the new folder
In command prompt, type "Runit.bat nameofpackage.ava newnameforpackage.ava"
The new .ava file will now be in this folder. Install the newly created .ava file and it should now install to Avalanche
