    Dear sirs,

    I have an application based on phonegap/javascript and I am trying to use the Keyboard plugin.

    In order to do so, it seems that I must create an App package version of my app as AppBuilder companion app does not support this plugin.

    Unfortunately whenever I try to build the Android App Package using AppBuilder Extension for Visual Studio v 2015.2.519.4 build fails, and it give me the following error:

    android Build Tooling revision 2015.5.19.3r
    Warning: WARNING: Plugin 'com.telerik.mobiletesting' was removed
    Warning: [aapt]     (skipping file '.travis.yml' due to ANDROID_AAPT_IGNORE pattern '.*')
    Warning: [aapt]     (skipping file '.jenkins' due to ANDROID_AAPT_IGNORE pattern '.*')
    Warning: [aapt]     (skipping file '.gitignore' due to ANDROID_AAPT_IGNORE pattern '.*')
    Error: [crunch] ERROR: 9-patch image /tmp/builds/hWLWXVxWlol5YsypDD/app/res/drawable-nodpi/splashscreen.9.png malformed.

    I have read this has to do with typescript but I am not using typescript.

    Hi Ioannis,

    Can you confirm that you haven't modified the splashscreen.9.png file in App_Resources/Android/drawable-nodpi or through the project properties -> Android -> General -> Splash Screens. When modifying this file, you must ensure that you are using a valid 9-patch image. To create one, you can use Draw 9-patch.


    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.
