Proper Basepath Formatting in DNN Module Manifest

01 Nov

After struggling with an issue when installing a custom authentication provider that no-one could seem to help with, I finally found the resolution.  I had a <basepath>desktopmodules/myfolder</basepath> declaration inside the script area.....well DNN packages need the /'s to be \'s.

After asking around for almost 2 weeks, that was the end fix to a long running error, so I thought I'd put this out there as a helpful reminder for all of us!  The good news, a new version of my Custom Authentication Provider will be released now!  :)
