Hi,

I've had some strange issues to get past but I have been able to build my "Hello World" app. I followed the instructions found here: h t t p s:// developer. android. com/ training/ basics/ firstapp/ index.html

So now I have it built, I run the emulator and I cannot see my app. I try using my phone and same thing, I cannot see my app.

I downloaded a sample app, built that and I can see the app in my emulator (and phone) after I turn off my anti-virus software.

So here are the issues I have resolved to get my "Hello World" app to compile/build:
1. When I created the new project and first built it I had errors relating to the colors.xml and dimens.xml files not being complete, therefore the xml was invalid. I searched the internet and found examples of these files so corrected them. I have confirmed that the color and dimen names are the only ones referred to.
2. The next issue was invalid *.png files. I was able to work out which files they were and copied a valid png file and renamed it to replace the invalid files.

Here is my Gradle Console, post build:
Executing tasks: [clean, :app:generateDebugSources, :app:generateDebugAndroidTestSources, :app:mockableAndroidJar, :app:prepareDebugUnitTestDependencies, :app:compileDebugSources, :app:compileDebugAndroidTestSources, :app:compileDebugUnitTestSources]

Configuration on demand is an incubating feature.
Incremental java compilation is an incubating feature.

BUILD SUCCESSFUL

Can you please help me here as I cannot understand why I cannot view my app, and obviously cannot go any further on my quest to become an app developer.

Thanks
Pete

Resolved; it was a version of the emulator issue. Used earliest possible, ie. API 9 and yes it works. And I guess not compatible with my newish phone.

Thanks
