Does the "Run As" menu say "(none applicable)"? Make sure you're inside the code editor and not the console. If that doesn't work, you can also right click on the CrystalBall directory in the Package Explorer on the left hand side, and then go to "Run As" and "Android Application" from that drop down menu.

I got it to work! thankss!! i had to go to the CrystallBall directory in the package explorer.. thank you so much!
