Error: pkg: /data/local/tmp/Kyler.funfacts Failure [INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_MANIFEST_MALFORMED]

Same question as a few below! I tried changing my package name to exclude capitals but it then causes other errors. I will try to find a neat way to post the code ASAP.

pkg: /data/local/tmp/Kyler.funfacts Failure [INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_MANIFEST_MALFORMED]

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    package="Kyler.funfacts" >

        android:theme="@style/AppTheme" >
            android:label="@string/app_name" >
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

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


Can you please post your Manifest.xml?

Yep, you can't have capital letters in your package name. And, while it is possible, it's kind of a pain to change your package name after the fact. It's probably easiest to just start over with a lowercase package name, and then copy/paste over all the files.

Also, somehow you've found the older version of this course. Here's a link to the newer version if you're interested :)
