What is this exception for component load rules file during a build?

I have a component named MyComponent with the following folder structure:


And this is what I have in my loadrules.txt file:


I've specified the loadrules.txt file in my build definition for this component, but when the build runs, I'm getting the following exception when it tries to fetch the files: Unexpected line "´╗┐versionableName=/MyProject/TestFile.txt" encountered in build load rules for component "MyComponent"

Any idea what I'm doing wrong? I've tried following the example here:
but I can't figure why it's not working for me.

EDIT: This is in RTC 3.

Also, it seems like regardless of what test I put in the loadrules.txt file (empty string, random text, etc.), I still get this "Unexpected line" exception for the first line of text I have in the file. I'm not sure if that helps, though.

That's strange.  It may be that Visual Studio is saving it as a unicode file, with a byte order prefix.

 Looks like it was an encoding issue. I had originally used Visual Studio to create the load rules file. Recreating it in Notepad++ solved this issue.
