Offline Package Drop, "The given path's format is not supported."

The process step is a “Deploy Java Archive” step, and the deployment target the same machine OD is running on, set to “Offline Package Drop”.

The following error occurs.

Hi,

Could you please send me the raw log as that should show the stack trace. Also a screenshot of your OfflineDrop target’s configuration would help as well.

Regards,

Rob W

Hi,

The problem is being caused by the : character in the package name. I have raised an issue and a fix is being reviewed. It should be in the next release. Until then, you can work around it by removing the : from the package name.
