Detected malicious verification code when verifying element

Quick post here. Hopefully you find this before spending an hour on it like I did. It ended up being a typo in a write action type id.

Basically, it simply came down to changing this:

<WriteAction ID=”WA” TypeID=”MyMp.MyWriteActin”>

To this:

<WriteAction ID=”WA” TypeID=”MyMp.MyWriteAction”>

Lesson learned – be careful when authoring XML directly and use intellisense when it’s available.


Below is the full error I receive by the Visual Studio Authoring Extensions.

Error    72    Detected malicious verification code when verifying element of type Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Configuration.ManagementPackRule with inner exception: System.Collections.Generic.KeyNotFoundException: The given key was not present in the dictionary.
