Installing apps with Eclispe AVD causes duplicates

Postby KevinD » Sun Oct 24, 2010 8:01 pm

I've been developing an application for the past few days. I use the eclipse debug process to run the app on my phone. I've modified my manifest package name several times over the past few days. I now have 4 or 5 duplicate apps on my main app menu. When I go to manage applications I only see one app in the list. If I uninstall that single app, all app icons are removed from my main app menu. If I reinstall any version of my app, all 5 icons reappear. Any idea on how I can remove these redundant/duplicate apps? Thanks

It's not duplicate app's. It's all the one app. Check your manifest file, for every activity that has :
Code: Select all
<intent-filter>
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
                <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
            </intent-filter>


You get an icon.
