  • You cant change it yourself.
    - If you perform an upgrade, the packageID stays the same, only the versionID changes.
    - If you create a new package from scratch, both Package and VersionID will change.
    - If you open and SAVE as new package, both Package and VersionID will change.

  • The save as new package option available when you edit the .appv package using sequencer package editor allows to save an updated package with a new package GUID.If shortcut names are same, it is advisable  to change the shortcuts to ensure that they are not overwritten by the new package as GUID are different now.
