Hi,

We are trying to make our first Android app, with years of VCL development behind us.

I has run once. At first had to work out where I needed to put the ZipAlign.exe after I somehow updated the SDK without knowing what I was doing.

But now it doesn't run. I compiles and links fine. When i try to run it (debugging), the compile dialog goes through the stages Deploying, Stipping Symbols, Installing ...

But it stays at Installing forever. Is there something I could be doing wrong?

Regards
Mark

What version of Android or what Android device are you deploying to?

Hello,

try to pass the -cleaninstall parameter to the options in the parameters
dialog in the run main menu of Delphi.

This will unisntall your app and completely reinstall it every time.
Otherwise you can run into issues.

I'm having the same issue attempting to deploy to an emulator (one created from scratch in the AVD manager, so my app isn't installed on it yet).

Good thing I have a device to deploy to (which works), otherwise I'd be completely stuck.
