Failure [INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_MANIFEST_MALFORMED] - Can't run app in the emulator!

This shows when I launch my emulator. The emulator doesn't run the app, it goes to the home screen.

Hi ! take a look on this post Someone had the same problem that you have, try the solutions posted there

Thanks, I saw that post but the Geny emulator confused me as I wanted to use the in-built one that comes with Android Studio. I managed to fix it by following that post and changing my package name to lower case. Had no idea it had to be lower case! Thanks for the help
