Android Maps: Installation error: INSTALL_FAILED_MISSING_SHARED_LIBRARY
I'm trying to use Android Maps, following the instructions in Hello MapView.
I've added <uses-library android:name="com.google.android.maps" /> in the Manifest, and I'm building against the 'Google APIs' target, which claims to be API version 7.
So I don't think I'm doing anything obviously wrong, but the project refuses to build with this error:
[2010-12-22 13:34:32 - FMS]Installing FMS.apk... [2010-12-22 13:35:01 - FMS]Installation error: INSTALL_FAILED_MISSING_SHARED_LIBRARY [2010-12-22 13:35:01 - FMS]Please check logcat output for more details. [2010-12-22 13:35:01 - FMS]Launch canceled!
logcat is telling me the following (not very enlightening):
D/PackageParser( 55): Scanning package: /data/app/vmdl67147.tmp I/PackageParser( 55): com.android.fms: compat added android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE E/PackageManager( 55): Package com.android.fms requires unavailable shared library com.google.android.maps; failing! W/PackageManager( 55): Package couldn't be installed in /data/app/com.android.fms.apk D/AndroidRuntime( 206): Shutting down VM
It is possible I haven't set up the Maps API key correctly - when I got it using keytools, I didn't specify an alias_name, though this didn't seem to cause an error.
Can anyone help?
This error arises from the fact that Google Maps not installed on your device/emulator.
Find another device (or install Google Maps on your device) or create AVD for emulator with Google Maps.
Make sure that your project is set up to target API level 3 (android create project -t 3 ...), and that the AVD you are testing with is also set for API level 3 (or you are testing on an actual device with Google Maps on it).
