Web AppBuilder "application" won't Launch in Web AppBuilder Tool

We installed Web AppBuilder and hooked it up to our local Portal installation and built a test app.

 

We used these two documents to do so:

 

https://developers.arcgis.com/web-appbuilder/guide/getstarted.htm

 

https://developers.arcgis.com/web-appbuilder/guide/build-your-first-app.htm

 

If I edit the test app the widgets I assigned to be in the test app show up.   If I Launch the test app from within Web AppBuilder, the widgets also show up.  

 

When I use the browser debugging tools to track what calls are being made over the network, I see calls like this for widgets:

 

myserverUrl/widgets/Search/manifest.json?wab_dv=2.3


I then created several other web apps.  They work just fine in web app builder "edit" mode.  However, if I attempt to launch them within web appbuilder, none of the widgets show up.

 

When I use the browser debugging tools to track what calls are being made over the network, I see calls like this for widgets:

myserverUrl/widgets/Search/?1234567890123manifest.json&wab_dv=2.3

 

Obviously, it doesn't find the widget manifest file as the url call is malformed. 

I don't know what I've forgotten to do or done wrong.  

I've been trying to debug a deployment issue but as I back-tracked thru things, I realized the problem might predate any deployment issues.  Unless, of course, one has to have deployed an app before one can launch it in the web appbuilder tool.
