Some of the common errors encountered when you try to upload your listing on the Adobe Exchange Developer portal, with resolution as mentioned below.
An icon for the product has not been uploaded. To publish the product, you must associate it with a product icon of the proper size and format. To upload the icon, see the Images - Upload images and videos section above.
An image file uploaded exceeds the 400-K limit. It is too large to be uploaded to the service.
The product does not have a summary or description associated with it. To publish the product, you must provide this info.
To add a summary or description, see the Upload & Docs sections above.
You have not enabled your account to sell products via the FastSpring service. Without the key, you only publish free products. To enter your FastSpring key, click your name at the top of the page. Select Account from the menu, fill your FastSpring Key and click Submit. Make sure to enter your FastSpring key, and NOT your FastSpring password.
There is already a ZXP uploaded to the system that has the same bundle ID as the ZXP submitted. A bundle ID is most likely to conflict with a product you have already uploaded, or with another developer’s ZXP if the bundle ID is fairly simple (such as. “My_extensio n” rather than“com.mycompany.myextension”). The uniqueness of the bundle ID is checked against published, unpublished, and retracted products.
The ZXP uploaded exceeds the 2-gigabyte limit. It is too large to be uploaded to the service.
This error message can apply to several areas but generally means that the partner name, or product title has a leading or trailing space.
