Missing Shared Library com.google.android.maps?

I cant seem to find if anyone else is experiencing the same symptoms as I am, so here goes.

Newbie, using windows XP. I'm getting this error message trying to load a simple maps app:

[TRACE] E/PackageManager( 65): Package com.athardev.oho requires unavailable shared library com.google.android.maps; failing!
[TRACE] W/PackageManager( 65): Package couldn't be installed in /data/app/com.athardev.oho-1.apk
[TRACE] D/dalvikvm( 65): GC_EXPLICIT freed 15106 objects / 743016 bytes in 175ms
[TRACE] D/AndroidRuntime( 356): Shutting down VM
[TRACE] D/jdwp ( 356): adbd disconnected
[TRACE] I/AndroidRuntime( 356): NOTE: attach of thread 'Binder Thread #3' failed
[ERROR] Failed installing com.athardev.oho: pkg: /data/local/tmp/app.apk

This occurs even though I have installed all available api's using Android's SDK-manager.

What am I missing? Your help is appreciated in advance.

  • Make sure you are using at least Android version 1.6, 1.5 will not work and you can see an error like that.

  • Hi John, thanks for the clue. However, since I am using Android 'APIs 2.1-update 1', the issue might be somewhere else. Sorry, I should've mentioned this detail in my initial post.
    Is there any other information I can provide?

  • I am not seeing that problem, I am going to test and see if I can find an answer for you.

  • John, I did a couple of things and now am getting a different error. Deleted the AVD's, rebooted laptop and tried building the KitchenSink. I didnt get the maps library error (or maybe just didnt get that far in the compile process) and got the following error:

    [TRACE] File "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Titanium\modules\win32\python\1.0.0\lib\subprocess.py", line 822, in _execute_child
    [TRACE] startupinfo)
    [TRACE] WindowsError: [Error 87] The parameter is incorrect

    Would this indicate I have a mismatch of files somehow?
    Sorry if I sound completely lost, because at the moment, I am.
