I have a problem with the B4A Firebase tutorial - When I attempt to compile the project I get the following report

The manifest file is
'This code will be applied to the manifest file during compilation.
'You do not need to modify it in most cases.
'See this link for for more information:

CreateResourceFromFile(Macro, Themes.DarkTheme)
'End of default text.

Can anyone help?

Have a look at the AndroidManifest XML file in your projects \Objects directory & see if anything looks amiss in it. That's the manifest that is being installed with the app.

Hi, Guys - thanks for the quick response.

1. Had a look at the AndroidManifest.xml file - it appears OK but I really don't know what I should be looking for - I have uploaded the file as requested.

2. The issue occurred with an Android 6 phone, after reading a post with similar problems, I tried it on an Android 9 phone and that worked (the manifest file is from that successful compile operation).

In the interim, I will retry with the Android 6 phone just and compare manifest files).

Kind regards

Hi, Again

After the success with Android 9 phone, I retried with the Android 6 again and still reports the problem (also compared the AndroidManifest.xml files between the Android 6 and 9 phones compilations and they are identical).
