Import layout "empty file in zip"

Installed 1.8rc2 in a fresh instance. Prior to that I exported all of the layouts I had in use on 1.79. When I try to import the data, I get “empty file in zip” after the upload box. the layout doesn’t show in the layouts screen. The log file says:

35 6d57297 2017-01-26 16:11 WEB POST ERROR /layout/import Error importing Layout: Empty file in ZIP
34 6d57297 2017-01-26 16:11 WEB POST ERROR /layout/import Problem getting library/cc-digital.swf. Files: layout.json, layout.xml, mapping.json,

I think that’s related to the xibolibrary import, which doesn’t have the original file name, only a number.
Is there another way to go about this? My upgrade fails at step one. (see other thread on that).

May we have a report fault output and an example exported layout so that we might try it here?


I tried to upload the layout, but I get an error that it’s not a JPG or BMP. Is there a location to upload or just use
. I have a new layout with the same name, so I’m not sure if I can duplicate the import error. I only saved two of them because I rolled back the VM several times while trying to upgrade.

Please use dropbox/ google drive etc to upload your layout and logs then share the download link with us.
