Design Studio 1.5 SP02 SDK Samples


I downloaded Design Studio 1.5 SP02 SDK Samples, but they are not running.

I found a local copy of an older set of samples for DS 1.5 SDK and those are running fine.

The current (SP02) samples are generating following errors:

!SESSION 2015-10-24 15:48:41.609 -----------------------------------------------

!MESSAGE Could not load Design Studio Extension "". You can find more information in the corresponding error messages.

Could the samples have been updated for Design Studio 1.6 already?

    You have to delete the line mentioned as below, part of "contribution.xml"

    modes="commons m"

    Hi Andrei,

    Yes, the DS 1.5 SP02 samples have been updated in anticipation of DS 1.6. Did you try replacing your current SDK schema file with the new one provided with the samples? This may eliminate the error messages without the need to edit the contribution.xml file.
