Any project exports with Thumbnail.jpg error


In my case, after updating to SU6, any project export finishes with the following error:


The filename remains the same but folders correspond to specific projects. If Thumbnail.jpg is generated manually then during the Export it is removed and the error appears again. All files are added correctly in the Marketplace category of the project and this is also the case with the products already published at the Marketplace.

Any hint on how to fix this would be appreciated.

Can you make sure that Thumbnail.jpg file is present in PackageDefinitions\yourpackagename\MarketplaceData\ ?
Can you try to reselect the jpg files to make sure they're copied to right place?

@FlyingRaccoon , the image I have selected as the ContentInfo image has a different name indeed but that different name is correctly added to the MarketplaceData project config. Does that image has to be named exactly "Thumbnail.jpg"?

Please note that it worked before flawlessly.

Yes, it should be named Thumbnail.jpg but this is automatic. If you select some toto.jpg in the Inspector, it will copy it in the ContentInfo directory and rename it Thumbnail.jpg.

Your inspector allows you to select that jpg and keeps its name?
