Hi,

I have developed a simple app using target sdk 8. But minSDKVersion is 3. I setup an emulator with Target SDK 1.5 (i.e. API Level 3). When my main activity starts it throws an exception while drawing view. Following is the exception.....

The exception boils down to filenotfound... res/drawable/title_bar_shadow.9.png. What is this file. Is this a file not present in 1.5. I am not explicity referencing this file anywhere.

Please suggest what may be the cause of the problem.

Thanks.

A similar question with the same kind of stack trace this should answer your question.It states thats it primarily is due to the different ways SDK 1.5 & 2.2 handle drawables
