Android Question

Most basic libgdx app crashes

I am setting up to develop an libGDX Android app on Windows 10, latest Eclipse Mars.2, latest Android SDK and latest version of libGDX. I am following the setup instructions from here:
Project Setup Gradle

and here:

Setting up your Development Environment (Eclipse, Intellij IDEA, NetBeans)

and here

Gradle and Eclipse

I when I run my android app it crashes with output in logcat:

Any idea on what I am doing wrong?

Here is my android code which unchanged and generated by the libGDX setup process.

package com.mygdx.game;

import android.os.Bundle;

import com.badlogic.gdx.backends.android.AndroidApplication;
import com.badlogic.gdx.backends.android.AndroidApplicationConfiguration;
import com.mygdx.game.MyGdxGame;

public class AndroidLauncher extends AndroidApplication {
@Override
protected void onCreate (Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
AndroidApplicationConfiguration config = new AndroidApplicationConfiguration();
initialize(new MyGdxGame(), config);
}
}


Here's my AndroidManifest.xml (again unchanged by be at all)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
package="com.mygdx.game"
android:versionCode="1"
android:versionName="1.0" >

<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="8" android:targetSdkVersion="23" />

<application
android:allowBackup="true"
android:icon="@drawable/ic_launcher"
android:label="@string/app_name"
android:theme="@style/GdxTheme" >
<activity
android:name="com.mygdx.game.AndroidLauncher"
android:label="@string/app_name"
android:screenOrientation="landscape"
android:configChanges="keyboard|keyboardHidden|orientation|screenSize">
<intent-filter>
<action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
</intent-filter>
</activity>
</application>

</manifest>


Here is the gradle.build in the android directory, also unchanged by me.

If I try to run the App in the debugger I get this in the logcat as soon as I try and step over the first instruction:

Answer

I only had this problem with Eclipse. When I followed the setup instructions for Android Studio the issue did not occur.
