Created by Sebastiaan Janssen 19 Aug 2012, 14:55:07 Updated by Sebastiaan Janssen 23 Oct 2012, 19:57:00

Duplicates: U4-1011

If one tries to create a package and there is no 'root element' an error is thrown.

'Root element is missing'

This is a normal .net error, so if the developer has custom errors on this error isn't displayed and you will just get a screen of death.

Umbraco v 4.8.0 (Assembly version: 1.0.4583.15483)
