Custom Apps and Creating new Projects

Hello everyone,

i would like to install a new project via Shotgun Desktop with the “Advanced Project Setup” Wizard.
The new project should base on another project which has some custom apps of type “dev/path”.

During install process i always get the following error message:
sgtk:descriptor:path?path=\\path\to\NEW_PROJECT\CONFIG\install\apps\app-name does not point at a bundle on disk!

I dont know why the Install Wizard is expecting this app at a location which should be created by the Install Wizard? If i create the folders and copy the app to this location (as expected), i get another error message that there already exists a configuration for this new project.

How can i avoid such errors and why does the installer not simply copy custom apps to the new project?

Thanks in advance,
