Double Icons for app

Postby myshoes » Mon Aug 10, 2009 1:38 am

Does anyone know what may cause an app to install twice? This is in reference to the MyCoupons app installing duplicate icons and app names, with one icon opening the mycoupons app itself and the second opening an instance of the barcode scanner... Even with the barcode core files NOT included as an external JAR and simply included as a collection of java files I am left scratching my head ...

it happens if you have
<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
twice in the manifest file, one with each activity (mycoupons and barcode scanner)

I haven't reviewed just yet but if I somehow missed that I will buy you a beer. This has been 3 days of headaches hunting down a glitch that shouldn't have been, and I wound up releasing a downgraded version not ten minutes ago as I didn't see your message :( Kudos for your reply, I realize many people don't show their appreciation for help but wanted to be sure you were aware of mine...
