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

Created a blank app wth web works.

Selected release mode and device entered keystore password and it compiles

I then use DDPB to deploy to device. Blackberry Q5

App runs fine, no errors


However when trying to upload to BES Server get error:


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


If i rename the bar file to zip then examine the contents

There are two folders




If i go into META-INF, i can see MANIFEST.MF


Can you shed some list as to why this will not deploy to BES when webworks builds and signs and it work on a device.
