 I have an application which has notifications that disappear when the
application is closed to be reinstalled or upgraded.

How can I have my application either run code when it is first
installed or have it detect the first time it is run?

 Simply write data to the disk, perhaps the version number of the last
time the application ran. Then check this number at startup.

1. Android browser is parsing my XML (KML) document

Hey Guys-

Is there any way to display raw XML in an Android Browser. My XML file
is being stripped of all the XML tags, and I need them for my map
application to work correctly.

Please advise,



2. I can't find \data\misc\location folder!!


I'm a begginer and I need some help with this before ask about other
problems in my application..First of all:

---> Why I don't have -->misc<-- folder and -->location<-- folder in
my devices?? I've changed the root path during installation but I
don't think it should be a problem...

I'm trying to develop a GPS app on Windows XP with Eclipse. While I'm
debbuging my code, I get the message that gps LocationProvider doesn't
exist....And I guess it's true...

any idea?? I've tried to reinstall but the problems still be there...

thanks a lot.
