*Is* there a file called HelloAndroid.apk somewhere? Maybe you're only compiling, but not actually linking/bundling the code into an .apk file.

Hey Sekhar, Just shut down the emulator and the IDE and relaunch the application once again, I think that it should do the trick

Hello.

I tried the following when I got the problem and then it worked:
I got a message "Failed to install HelloWorld3.apk on device emulator-5554

Solution that worked for me:
In Eclipse go to Window -> Android SDK and AVD Manager ->
create a new AVD (Android Virtual Device)
when I gave the name as em22 which was the name I had given
earlier, I got a problem so I gave the name as em23
SD Card size as 128 MB.

Then it worked!
