Tool Installer Error: Unable to find a configuration file

5 - Atom

 Hi, I am creating my own tool (using Alteryx's guide:, and running into the error "Tool Installer Error: Unable to find a configuration file" when I test my .yxi file.


I attached an image of my file structure, which I am zipping and then changing the extension to .yxi. Also, below is the contents of the  Config.xml file. Please let me know where you see my mistake!
