To fix this issue, ensure there is a Deploy Access Token in the root of your ACP. The file will be named:


    • <package_ID> is the value entered in the App ID field on the Package page of the Auto Packager. Example: Notepad++_x64

For example deploy-access-Notepad++_x64.token

If you still encounter problems, please contact your Cloudhouse Partner in the first instance (if relevant), otherwise contact Cloudhouse Support for further assistance.


When trying to deploy a Cloudhouse Application Compatibility Package (also known as a Cloudhouse Compatibility Container™) using Cloudhouse.Container.Deployment.exe, I see a window flash open then disappear.

Looking in the DeploymentWorkflowLog.txt (located in the root of the ACP), I see entries like:

ERROR Cloudhouse.Container.Deployment.Program - Failed: 

Cloudhouse.Container.Core.Exceptions.InvalidLicenceException: Container has no container token files.

   at Cloudhouse.Container.Core.PackageDirectory.ValidateTokenFiles()

   at Cloudhouse.Container.Core.Licensing.LicenseService.EnableDeployLicensing()

   at Cloudhouse.Container.Deployment.DeploymentCommandFactory.Deploy()

   at Cloudhouse.Container.Deployment.Program.Main(String[] args)

ERROR Cloudhouse.Container.Deployment.Program - Exiting with code: -1


You will see this error if the ACP you are trying to deploy does not have a Deploy Access Token.
