    Question Android emulator problem


    I've started, and I am new to writing apps for Android devices. I have been using this tutorial site Getting Started | Android Developers, and I'm stuck on trying to display a simple Hello World text on the emulator. The emulator is up and running, and when I click 'Run as..' from Eclipse, nothing happens or shows up on the device?

    I looked in the apps menu of the emulator, but my app does not seem to appear?
    Does it matter what type of Emulator you use?

    Does the LogCat or the Console have any errors or warnings?
    There is always the possibility that you didn't set your project up to be compatible with the Emulator's Android Version that you selected, but I'm not sure what would happen if that was the case.
    How long do you wait when you press "Run As..."? Keep in mind that the apk needs to be created and then it actually gets "installed" onto the Emulator so, depending on the size of your project, it might take a few seconds, or even a minute or two if you have a slow computer.

    When asking for help, please follow these guidelines to receive better and more prompt help:
    1. Put your code in Java Tags. To do this, put [highlight=java] before your code and [/highlight] after your code.
    2. Give full details of errors and provide us with as much information about the situation as possible.
    3. Give us an example of what the output should look like when done correctly.
