How to Launch Android App in Elcipse

I just start learning Android app development and in the very first video about the Crystal Ball Project, I cannot run the app, probably due to wrong manipulation in Virtual Device Manager or other else which I am unfamiliar with. Anyway when I click the run button the system said that the selection cannot be launched. I viewed all details provided in teacher's note but still cannot figure out. Please help. I know it is an easy problem for some people.

First, check out your Android Virtual Devices, and try making a new one. I personally don't get too intricate with them, I just use a simple preset. This is what I use

Try right-clicking your Android project and clicking "Run-As" > "Android Application". If that doesn't work: Right-click the Android project and click "Run-As" > "Run Configurations" > Target and choosing the AVD that you just made.

Hope this helps.
