Default Hello World

I just got the book, followed the instructions to set up the environment (Eclipse) and have now spent 5+ hours trying to get the "Hello World" example to work - and cannot.

I've followed the steps given by the likes of XCopy in previous threads and even went through the instructions to get the latest version of the Android SDK 4.1 as provided by the author. Still, it's not working.

Why doesn't this work? What am I doing wrong? What information should I post for assistance?

I sort of feel ashamed and an array of saddness on this one.

When trying to run the HelloWorld in the emulator - it looks as if I failed to give it enough time to start. After watching a tutorial on lynda.com, I guess it's common for an emulator to take up to a couple of minutes to 'boot up' (so to speak). Now whether I failed to wait long enough when I originally created and started the AVD or when I first ran the HelloWorld app - I don't know.

I created the HelloWorld app just as the author/book said and upon running the app.... and waiting a mind-numbing 2 minutes or so ... the end result came up as expected.

There are still quirks and differences between the latest development environment I downloaded and the book, but at least I'm finally past page 23!
