When trying to install google chrome extension. Getting failed operation error when loading unpacked. as per procedure. Require assistance as it has worked in the past.
Customer tried it from another VM and it worked a couple weeks back but it would not work on the two VM’s they need to run the scripts on.
Failed to Load extension
Manifest file is missing or unreadable
Could not load manifest.
Release : 20.3
Component : UIM - E2E_APPMON
Chrome browser version 97.0.4692.71
Tested/ran through the procedure internally within Broadcom Lab environment but did not encounter any issue on the step "Load unpacked". Not reproducible in the Broadcom Lab.
Customer copied the ext file from another VM where load of the extension in Chrome was working without issue, and this resolved the error/issue.
Chrome says my extension's manifest file is missing or unreadable
