The .bar file is invalid because the manifest file is missing.

Hi I am developing a simple BB10 enterprise app and asking our BES administrator to deploy it.  The bar file was provided, but there was an error when adding the app to BES 10. The error is "The .bar file is invalid becausethe manifest file is missing" . Also see the error message screen shot (it can be opened in a new browser tab for better quality)

Error Message


The app was tested locally on dev alpha device and it works. I am not sure what the problem could be. Why it is complaining about manifest file? My understanding is in BB10, there is just a bar file and there is no manifest file. 

Please help.

See http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB29509 - there is something wrong with the package. It is more a Developer Question than a BB Admin Question.
