Hello, i have strange problem.

Lets say i want to create app with button, after pressing button move to another window for example with another button with different action.

And it works, but there is strange problem, when im testing it on real devices (for example HTC Wild Fire S, Or HTC Desire)

After installing my app, its showing TWO SHORTCUTS with the same name (name of app) and after runningthem

first is opening program, and second is opening second window of tihis program (window which should appear after pressing button from program)

I just created new activity java file, and xml file for window gui, and in my main activity i have added this in action listener for button:

Thanks for help!

Can you Post the Manifest of this program, as far as i can predict you might have copied the intent filter of the main Program and pasted the same for the second activity and your manifest might look like this

All you have to correct this is to delete the complete intent-filter node for second activity
