NOTE: Of late, I have been getting requests for very trivial problems that many of you are facing in your day-to-day work. This blog is not to solve your "project" problems - surely not a "Support" site.
I just love to share my knowledge in my spare time and would appreciate any questions or feedback on the articles and code I have shared. I also do appreciate thought-provoking questions that would lead me to write more articles and share.
But please do not put your day-to-day trivial problems here. Even if you do, you most probably would not get a response here.

Eclipse Set up and New Android Project

The first steps of configuring Eclipse to create android applications and the steps involved in creating a first android project are very well described in this blog at the screencast site. Hence I am not repeating the same here.


  1. Hi sai geetha
    I am beginner android application developer.
    I have done lot of apps in eclipse on emulator and device also.But now it is giving error at the time of running project on emulator.It is working on device phone but on emulator it is giving following error,

  2. Aloha...

    I don't know a thing about Android programming, but a wild guess: Is it because you changed direction on your slashes? Some go this way \ and some go this way / in the line


  3. Hey may be you have updated your Android, Because New one is facing problem while mentioning SDK path, It can not understand spaces. Give path without spaces or use like this


    This can solve your problem

  4. Hi,

    Your compile time error is myemu.ini becuase of not picking this item from your directory of sdk. Make sure to place your sdk under c:/android/your directory....
