Tutorial :Android Demo's aren't appearing in simulator


I'm trying to get my feet wet with Android development. I downloaded Eclipse, and setup the ADT. When I create a project from existing source, I choose the demo projects (API Demo) and compile + run. The simulator pops up but I can't seem to find the API Demo application. How can I get this up and running?


Resolved by running /tools/android and setting the base API to 2.2. APK installed fine after that


Look in the AndroidManifest.xml file in the project for activities that are marked as launch activities. They should have something like:

<activity . . .>    <intent-filter . . . >      <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />    </intent-filter>  </activity>  

From there you should be able to see the name of the application as it will appear in the app list.

If there are none, than a runnable application won't be installed.


Is there anything in the output? The emulator can be flaky at times. Try closing the emulator and running it again, or go to the bin/ directory in the project and enter "adb install [packageName].apk" in the shell.

The output should tell you what's wrong when you try to run it. If the above doesn't work, please post the full output.
