I'm having the same issue. I searched online but I did not find anything comprehensible.

Hi Costi and Seyed! I am going to assume that you are both trying to run your apps on the default emulator that comes with the Android Developer tools. What errors do your apps give, or does the emulator simply not load them. If it's just not loading them, try Genymotion, there is a fantastic module on setting up to work with eclipse and it's so much better you wouldn't believe! Find the module at Getting Started with GenyMotion

Hope that Helps!

thank you thank you thank you! the only problem is that my project has too many errors in it! do you know how or where to download the project code?

Run your app and then paste the error text from Logcat either to here or to pastebin if it's quite long. This will tell us where in your app the problem lies

well. I meant to say that my emulator is fine. but the code for the app itself has too many errors because of my old emulator not working. But thanks for the answers!
