Building Blocks not uploading; missing bb-manifest.xml

Hi all,

 

I'm developing a building block currently, and followed the file structure for uploading the building block. Problem is, whenever I try to upload it to the dev environment or our universities' test environment, it gives me the error:

 

Could not install Building Block. There were one or more errors in the manifest for {0}.

Invalid Building Block Error: No manifest file was found in WEB-INF

 

Currently, my file is set up to be [buildingBlock]>WEB-INF>bb-manifest.xml. I've tried zipping this as both a zip and war file, (if that matters any,) making sure that the handle name is unique against any other building blocks, and have the bb-manifest set up pretty much the same as other templates that I've found to work. If it isn't a problem with the hierarchy of my files or Blackboard's ability to find the manifest file, what else could be wrong with it?
