Hello,

I'm new to addon development and would appreciate some assistance.

In an addon.xml file there is the following:

<dir>
<info compressed="false">http://myurl/addons.xml</info>
.....
</dir>

I have copied the addons.xml to my local hard drive on Windows 10.

It is in the following folder c:\myAddons\addons.xml

I tried to access it within Kodi using the following

<info compressed="false">c:\myurl\addons.xml</info>
<info compressed="false">\\localhost\c$\myurl\addons.xml</info>

No matter what I try I get the errors such as the following in the logs

CCurlFile::FillBuffer - Failed: Couldn't resolve host name(6)
CCurlFile::Open failed with code 0 for C:\myurl\addons.xml

Any help would be sincerely appreciated.

Thanks!

Jim
