MMW Adv Config error

I have setup MMW server on my machine and copied the default demo configuration into my configs and setup the user to show case the MMW Adv. See this json for my config within ingrnet.


When i point to my config I keep getting the App Initialization Error. I checked with Charles and saw that the Valdiate method on the config is false. 


Is there somethign I'm missing?

Re: MMW Adv Config error



please could you say, where did you get the mentioned MMW server from?


The MMW classic/professional server is not compatible with MMW essentials/advantage server.

The MMW essentials/advantage server is delivered with the Mobile SDK packages only. You need to have a HGDN subscription in order to download it. The deployment process is almost the same as in the past and its documented here Deploying MMW service

Re: MMW Adv Config error


I have setup the sdk version of the service, so now I move forward with login but when I select the configuration I'm getting the "Method Not Allowed" error. 


Here is the response from the request.

Re: MMW Adv Config error

OK thanks to Lukasz, I was able to resolve my problem. So here are list of things to take care. 


  1. Unlike one would assume, the server side for the MMW Ess/Adv is different to the server side of older MMW app. So MMW Ess/Adv config dont with vanilla 2016 MMW Server setup. One would have to copy it from the SDK. As for when this would be integrated into product as a SP/EP is a question to Vince!
  2. The config URLs in the DB do not have to a web url. It has to be a local system file-folder location. eg: C:\\Mobile\\mmw-service\\Database\\mmw.sdf. Do note the two back slashes to avoid and escape sequence. 
  3. DO NOT place the configuration folder within the Service folder. It has to be outside of the service folder. 

Following these and bit of luck one should be easily able to use MMW Ess/Adv app on any device. 


As for the configs and how to setup, there are few tips and tricks but that is for another time.
