Dash in PackageID rejected by APK Packager


I am replacing an old Air App with an Android App. My old Air App has dashes in the PackageID:




Now when I try to convert my apk to bar, I get the following error:

Manifest Exception during packaging:


If I replace the PackageName in my AndroidManifest with underscores it works. However then I cannot submit it as an update as it gets rejected after upload to BB world as it does not match the previous PackageID.

I cannot make a new App as I need to provide this updare to also my old customers.


How can I make the APK Packager accept "-" in the PackageID?
