Could you provide the code in your Android manifest file? It seems like the error's in that.

Your package name has a capital letter in it. Try refactoring your package so that all the letters are lowercase. To do this, in the panel for your project, make sure you're in Android view mode, then click the gear that is a little to the right of the view indicator, then make sure compact empty middle packages is unchecked. Next, right click on your package with a capital letter in it and select refactor -> rename. Change it to have a lower case, double check your AndroidManifest.xml is now a lower case, if not, manually edit it. Let me know if you need more assistance and I will gladly help.
