additional.. i searched the msdn for this one but all i've come up is the identifier should always start with either a letter or an underscore? is this correct?

any advice or suggestion would be greatly appreciated

I had this same validation error with a package ages ago - just can't remember which one.

As far as I can recall you are correct - it fails validation because it starts with a number. Don't think it causes an issue as far as the package working correctly goes so I'd suggest you ignore it - you don't have a lot of options anyway unless you remove the entries in the extension table etc which would stop file association working..

Hope this helps, if I can remember the package I'll have a look to see what I did and let you know. Pretty sure I lived with it though [;)]

Cheers,
Rob.


Just found the package - it was Real Player 10 Gold and has extenstions 3gp and 3g2... works fine!
