Comment 3 narayanp 2011-11-10 11:33:28 UTC
On MAC system:

API 7: "Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_OLDER_SDK]" occurs when we run the app
Comment 4 narayanp 2011-12-22 09:42:27 UTC
Now this issue has been fixed. New issue occurs when we run the app on API7.

Bug 2209 - Many samples layouts are not compatible with API Level 7
Hence closing this issue.
