I'm not a developer but I want to debug an Android app on my Droid. I have Eclipse installed, etc.

I am stuck now because I don't know how to define a launcher activity. Here are the console messages:

[2010-01-17 11:33:36 - TestApp]Android Launch!
[2010-01-17 11:33:36 - TestApp]adb is running normally.
[2010-01-17 11:33:36 - TestApp]No Launcher activity found!
[2010-01-17 11:33:36 - TestApp]The launch will only sync the application package on the device!
[2010-01-17 11:33:36 - TestApp]Performing sync
[2010-01-17 11:33:36 - TestApp]Automatic Target Mode: using device '04036_my_droid_09834'
[2010-01-17 11:33:36 - TestApp]Application already deployed. No need to reinstall.
[2010-01-17 11:33:36 - TestApp]/TestApp/bin/TestApp.apk installed on device
[2010-01-17 11:33:36 - TestApp]Done!
Where can I find some help for this? Thanks.

The launcher activity is defined in the AndroidManifest.XML file.

It is defined as:

<activity android:name=".ActivityName">
<action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />

Hope that helps! I had to dig around a while to find this information too...but my app now runs properly.

I'm having ENDLESS issues getting my app to run...

I'm following this tutorial but even adding your code, it still crashes when installing and opening the app on my device....


Here is y AndroidManifest:

<manifest xmlns:android=""
    android:versionName="1.0" >

        android:targetSdkVersion="21" android:maxSdkVersion="19"/>

        android:theme="@style/AppTheme" >
        <activity android:name=".MainActivity">
				<action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
				<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
