Jacque and Ralph,

thanks for your comments.

There were several problems i had to fix.

1. it seems all copies of my “old” android sdk did not work anymore. Tried here 4 different versions which were stored on different time machine drives. I had to install a new version of it.

2. I had an icon image in standalone settings selected which had a wrong size (512x512). Interestingly it worked  with that image when i first published that app in 2013. But now this image caused the package manifest error

3. Not really a problem. I noticed today that if i enter the password very fast and definitely without a typo some characters seem not to find there way into the field. 
I am writing with 10 fingers and i am really fast. And if i type slowly i am always able to create a standalone (after fixing the above 2 problems). But not if i type very fast. If i remember right now, i ran into this already in 2013.
I have now put a notice in 1Password for my “Keystore” password/alias record. So i have not to ask the list in 2 years again. ;)

Regards,

Matthias
