    As per this documentation, child element should be 'ParameterBindings' (with "s" at the end) and not 'ParameterBinding'. Try this and let me know if it works Sep 23, 2022 at 8:45

As per this documentation - View element (List),

Child element inside <View> element should be ParameterBindings (with "s" at the end) and not "ParameterBinding".

Change your view element XML according and it should work for you.

Documentation: View element (List) - Child elements


        <ParameterBinding Name = "Text" Location = "Text" />
        <ParameterBinding Name = "Text" Location = "Text" />
        <ParameterBinding Name = "Text" Location = "Text" />
  • Thanks for helping out, where would I be able to find the ViewElementXML on the site/in the .cmp backup file? @Ganesh

  • Thanks! I have been able to find the files within the .cmp file now, I can see various ParameterBindings and ParameterBinding entries throughout the Minifest.xml, is this the correct place to be searching for malformed xml, if so, how can I re-package the .cmp file? @Ganesh

  • You will find these entries in Manifest.xml and ViewFormsList.xml file. To re-package, try this and this Sep 23, 2022 at 12:59
  • Nice yes, I was able to successfully import using the -nofilecompression flag, one last question if you don't mind, do you know how this could be caused in the first place, seems to happen when there's only 1 <ParameterBinding> the <ParameterBindings> gets missed, what could trigger this? I will mark as Resolved thanks so much ! @Ganesh
