Couldn't import components (PCF)

I created a simple button component to test the code components framework.  I build the solution and uploaded/published it successfully. 

In a powerapp, after enabling components, I see my component in the import window. However, when I actually try to add it to my PowerApp I always get the error "Couldn't import components".

No other error message is displayed, and the component isn't added. Is there somewhere I can see what the actual issue is, and how I can solve this?

Hi @joerio ,

If you not give me error message, it's hard to find where the problem is.

Please check this issue, did you meet problem like this:

Maybe you could check the component limit to see whether you made mistake here:

Still many functions are not supported yet.

If the problem still exists, please ask for help here:

Re: Couldn't import components (PCF)

@v-yutliu-msft The whole issue is that I don't get any error message that could point me to the right direction


I see my component in the list and can select it.



However, when I click the import button I only see this red banner with "Couldn't import components". No other error message is shown anywhere.



How can I figure out what the actual exception is that is being thrown?

Hi @joerio 

Can you share out the ControlManifest.xml file from the control package you are trying to import?

The issue is probably due to using a tag in the xml file that Canvas doesn't support in loading yet like 'img'.
