 1. Wait more than 15 minutes before bumping your post.  Especially since
   it was made in the middle of the night.  Wait at least a day...
   2. You can't have an application without the manifest file
   3. Android can't run .bat or .exe files and I'm pretty sure you can't
   make it run .sh files without quite a bit of work
   4. What in the world are you trying to accomplish?

 IF what you are saying is that you created what you thought was an
Android project and you got those files and folders instead then you
either didn't setup the SDK or didn't set it up properly.   Go to  and follow the 
instructions step-by-step.  DOn't leave any out, don't try to get
creative and don't short-cut anything.  It'll take you < 30 minutes to
get a working environment.  Then do the Hello World app. Depending on
which programming language you already know then you can either jump
into making an app (if you know Java or some other similar language)
or continue with the tutorial applications.

 If you don't know any progamming language and still want to make
Android apps then go to  and 
use the App Inventor.  Make sure you subscribe to their excellent
forums/groups for help on that method of application development.

If you want those files in your application then please unsubscribe
from this group and go subscribe to a Windows Mobile developer

1. FileNotFoundException on FileOutputStream when writing on sdcard, no idea why


I'm trying to write a file to a sdcard, I'm using the same
writeToFile() function in all my apps, and I dont know why, it wont
work for this one, no idea why. It works for all the other apps, but
not for this one.

I have two classes, GPSTest, and GPSListener. writeToFile() is in
GPSListener, and called from this one too.

Here is the code:

public void writeToFile(String text) {

//      SharedPreferences prefs =
//      resultsFile = prefs.getString("fileName", "default");
        BufferedOutputStream buf = null;
        File file = new File("/sdcard/GPS Test/results/results.txt");

                try {
                        buf = new BufferedOutputStream(
                                        new FileOutputStream(file,true));


                } catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
                } catch (IOException e) {
                } finally {
            try {
                if (buf != null) {
            } catch (IOException ex) {

Thanks for your help, I really cant figure it out.


2. Instructing ItemizedOverlay when to re-draw

I over boolean draw() and had it return true to have my overlay
continually refresh and 'animate' the markers.   However, this happens
continuously and my backing data only changes periodically.  My
overlay is already aware of when the data changes.  Any idea how I can
instruct ItemizedOverlay to re-draw?
