Unable to create gpk for Runtime

After following the documentation here and here, we are unable to create a gpk for use within the Runtime.

We encountered the following issues when trying to use the python tools:

  • The documentation states that you can specify the save location for the gpk as just the file name, but we found that you must provide the full path to the file location. The same is true for the location of the GP result file.

  • using IDLE python IDE the provided sample from the docs crashes

  • After much trial and error trying to get the PackageResult parameters correct, it stated that any tool (we tried the existing Reverse Geocode and our custom GP tool) was not licensed for packaging


We were able to create a gpk from ArcMap using the Share As tool, but this does not allow for Runtime access. There needs to be a way to create a package for Runtime within ArcMap not using Python.
