Android Build a Simple Android App with Java Getting Started with Android Running the Fun Facts Project


Session 'app': Installation did not succeed. The application could not be installed: INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_NO_CERTIFICATES

The emulator does open but it does not run my app.

This is what I am getting in the event log. I followed all the instructors steps.

The only difference is that I am using Nougat 7.0.

  1. Close Android Studio
  2. Open Android Studio again
  3. Click Tools -> AVD Manager
  4. Within your virtual device, head to Actions, click the drop down chevron and click "Wipe Data".
  5. Close and Open Android Studio again and run your app.
  6. It'll take the emulator around an entire minute to open and then run your app.

When you run the newest android studio, it is still trying to download everything even as you open it for the first time. Thats why closing it and opening it helps.
