The manifest file is generated for you automatically and placed inside your bar file. You can't really change it though, as that will break the bar file's signature.

 

I'm not sure what you mean by "manifest number", what exactly are you trying to change?

Re: How and where do i find my manifest file

Thanks for the reply 

 

i wanted to add more and some new divces to my colourtex as some customers said it wasent working for them.

so i tryed to update it on the vender portal and unfortunately it had an error saying correct your ,bar file manifest and try again blackberry vender support had a look at my .bar file and said that the issue is that both the package version in the vender portal and manifest,mf file (in the bar file) is 1.0.0.1 i need to submit a bar file with a package version higher than 1.0,0,1 and a vender portal version higher than 1,0 so im i need my manifest,mf to change it

Yaeh, you can't edit the manifest directly, but that value is taken from the bar-desciptor.xml file. Change it in in there and reexport the app into a new bar file.
