Unhappy Code examples import without Android library

My apologies if this is a stupid newbie question...

I'm using Eclipse (Heios Release) and have the Android SDK all configured as per the developer.android.com recommendations. I can create and run new projects without any problem but I can't import one of this book's code samples using Import > Existing Projects Into Workspace.

Importing a zip creates a project but it doesn't create it as an Android project and the console displays the error: "Project has no default.properties file! Edit the project properties to set one."

I've tried going into the project Properties but as soon as I click on 'Android' in the properties tree a pop-up appears saying "Could Not Accept Changes: The currently displayed page contains invalid values"

See: http://screencast.com/t/ZmY3ZWQ4

But if I do this on one of my own projects I have no such error, and I'm able to change things such as the Android Platform/API level.
Any help would be really appreciated!

Default Resolved

This was answered for me on Stack Overflow:

"All the baseline default.properties needs is a line like:


You can copy another projects' default.properties into your project (choose one with the same API Level that you want). Then restart of Eclipse to rebuild the workspace.

NB you may find that your src folder includes a R.java file. You need to delete this as it is automatically created in the gen. Having two copies will generate an error.
