Deploying Splunk_TA_Windows Add-on to Cluster Errors With "No Spec File"

I am trying to deploy the latest version of the SplunkTAWindows Add-on (from July 30, 2014) to my cluster. When I deploy the bundle I get the messages:

TSTSplunkCM01.int.hlc.com:No spec file for: /opt/splunk/etc/master-apps/SplunkTAwindows/default/admon.conf

TSTSplunkCM01.int.hlc.com:No spec file for: /opt/splunk/etc/master-apps/SplunkTAwindows/default/eventgen.conf

...

This same error shows up for the perfmon.conf, regmon-filters.conf, paletteinputs.conf, palettepallettes.conf, palettepanels.conf, palettesearches.conf and splunk_msftapp.conf. These errors prevent the configuration bundle from being distributed.

Has anyone else seen this message and how did you fix it?

Thanks.

Actually we figured out that the problem was the "Invalid key..." message from the inputs.conf file. Once I commented out these lines in the default inputs.conf file all messages disappeared.

Hey I'm having the exact same issues
(http://answers.splunk.com/answers/154933/no-spec-file-and-invalid-key-in-stanza-when-pushing-windows...)

Are you saying that once you comment out the invalid stanza keys (useEnglishOnly) in the default\inputs.conf (which are disabled anyway), then the other errors (no spec file) are ignored and the apps push to the cluster?

I'm just trying to figure out the minimum changes required to the default app (to preserve upgrade path) that it will deploy without errors.

Have you checked your indexers in the cluster to make sure it did not get pushed out? Usually we will just warn about typos in conf files though this shouldn't prevent a bundle from being pushed out.
