Hello all, hopefully someone here can help me out. When I start a new android application, my gen folder is created empty, meaning I'm missing my file and can't compile my project. I've tried some of the solutions I've found online such as making sure the SDK and ADT are up to date, cleaning, building, and deleting the gen folder to see if a new one is created by the auto-build. Nothing seems to work.

Thank you for your help!!

Did you go to Project and hit clean? that should have regenerated your file.

Have you checked for any import android.R.* statements? You might have to remove those.

Appreciate the response. I guess I forgot to update here, I was able to fix the problem. The 3rd time I uninstalled and reinstalled everything, it started working. Very odd considering I didn't do anything differently than I did other times. Anyway, hopefully it stays that way. Thanks for trying to help me out though

I had encountered a similar situation.

First, uncheck the 'Build automatically' option in Eclipse/ADT.
Second, clean the project.
Third, manually delete the 'gen' folder.
Finally, clean and build the application. It ought to work. :)
