Because mobile application are going so viral everywhere, I figured I better learn something quick. So, my journey starts with going to the Android Developers site http://developer.android.com/index.html and downloading the Android SDK.
Reading through the download information, I see the use of Eclipse the associated plug-in, great! I follow the instructions and go to build the Hello world example. I am now getting the following error:
2010-11-16 13:40:23 - HelloAndroid] ERROR: Unable to open class file D:\Galileo\workspace\HelloAndroid\gen\com\example\helloandroid\R.java: No such file or directory
Using Windows Explorer I get:
where I find the file.
I am using Eclipse 3.5.2. Please Advise.
Sorry for the formatting, but the forum prevents me from using that letter by itself.

I've had similar such behaviour in Eclipse. Sometimes eclipse may complain that your project "has errors" and can't compile, yet the source code can be ok.
Best solution I've found, is to "clean" the project. I can't remember where that option is (not in front of an IDE) but somewhere along the top you can go Projects > Clean, I believe
Try that, it might help
Every time I create a project, this problem happens to me. I think it's nomal. For Eclipse read R.java before the IDE had generated it, it would happen.
Hope to help.
[I found a silly work around to this issue. Go up to File -> Restart and then run the build and run the project. It works.
I just tried this and it didn't work for me. Here are the step I took:
1) Create a new Android project
2) File | Restart
3) Right-click project and select Build.
Still got the error:
If course, my suggested workaround fixed this.
I've just downloaded Eclipse and installed the Android SDK.
When I try to run the Hello World, I get the following error message
[2010-12-11 13:06:38 - Tutoriel] /Tutoriel/gen already exists but is not a source folder. Convert to a source folder or rename it.

[2010-12-11 13:09:06 - Tutoriel] /Tutoriel/gen already exists but is not a source folder. Convert to a source folder or rename it.
I don't know what to do with this?
I've tried a couple of things but it seems the gen folder is always in the way when trying to run the app.
What am I not understanding here?
