I was hoping for a little help. I've recently install android studio on my windows 8.1 without a problem. I created a new project and tried running the emulator.

The emulator runs, but the app I created doesn't appear (no or my phone).

I see no error messages on the android studio and just can't figure out why the app won't appear.

Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

Hi Michael,
Write your class of Activity as launcher



    <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
    <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />

I'm still lost.

I've built two identical applications, one on a windows 7 pc, the other on a windowsn8 pc.

The codes are identical - both PCs open the emulator successfully.

However, the windows 8 pc won't show the app. One import note is that I had to enable the VT before the windows 8 laptop would run the emulator.

Does anyone know why the app may not appear on my emulator? Is there a systematic way to figure out where the problem lies (is it android studio, the emulator, the laptop's setting?)

Any help would be very much appreciated.
