Situation

When creating a bundle from an exported bundle with 'zman bc' the following error will be displayed:
Error:"/bundles/test/test_content/a428478f8f18798f37f79bbe37e1559f/test.dll" does not exist or is not a file.
ERROR: 62


The directory structure of the application looks like:
/bundles/test/test_content/a428478f8f18798f37f79bbe37e1559f/test.msi
/bundles/test/test_content/a428478f8f18798f37f79bbe37e1559f/files/test.dll

Workaround:
Change the file name in the bundlename_ActionContentInfo.xml to the file name ending on .msi.

Using the previous example, the test_ActionContentInfo.xml should look like the following:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<ActionInformation>
    <ActionSet type="Install">
        <Action name="Install MSI Action" type="Install MSI Action" index="1">
            <Content>
                <ContentFilePath includeAllFilesinFolder="true" includeAllFilesinSubFolders="true">test_content/a428478f8f18798f37f79bbe37e1559f/ test.msi</ContentFilePath>
            </Content>
        </Action>
    </ActionSet>
</ActionInformation>
