I was wondering :noggin:, when the device is connected via USB a compile and run is successful. When running the same install apk file again on the device (downloaded via smb/ftp), it can not install successfully. How can it install without USB? Is extra signing required to distribute like this?

That is odd - unless of course, your device isn't set to allow third party installations...

This device doesn't connect via USB currently although it has before. I'll need to retest it with another device that does connect/htc sync on USB and awaiting response from a third.

Here is the test app if you would like to test:

I am also having this problem on a Motorola Photon 4G.  To test I built the Arkanoid sample, it installs to the emulator just fine.  I have JAVA_HOME with no spaces, and I have ensured my phone allows applications from unknown sources...  still get the following failure (even though it says it succeeds...)

It's not finding your device, do you have the windows drivers installed ?

To check if it's connected properly
get the path to adb.exe in the android folder, on mine its in the folder:
 C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools
open a command prompt and type:

path C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools

then type:
 
adb devices

and it will show what devices are attached i.e.
Code: (glbasic) [Select]
List of devices attached
P729J_SBM      device

If no device is detected and you have your android device attached
power it off and on and reconnect and check you have the right drivers

That fixed it.  I had no idea for Android development you have to go get the USB device drivers from each manufacturer (Motorola, HTC, LG, etc...) to do development.  In my case, I had to install from http://developer.motorola.com/docstools/USB_Drivers/

All is working well now.

Thanks for the tip about using ADB.exe Devices to find the devices that were attached.  That is how I knew the issue was fixed.  Before I got the driver, it said there were no devices, after I installed the driver, it showed my device.

Thanks

I'm getting this error today on both computers I connect to my Android phone. Was working fine until this morning. Nothing was changed by me on the device or the computers. Since then I've tried changing the settings on the phone but I'm still seeing no devices being recognised. So strange.

Updating the terrible software Samsung supply with the phone and may reinstall the driver altogether. Maybe that will improve matters.

After HOURS OF PAIN I found that the goddamn USB cable was bad! Came with some cheap aftermarket charger and I had no idea I'd picked that one up instead of the standard cable.
