Where to change minimum version of Android
Thank the previous posters for suggesting the right area to look in. To clarify, here are some instructions that helped a newbie like me.
In the root directory of your project is a file named AndroidManifest.xml
. This is the file you need to open.
If you are using Eclipse, opening will bring up the Manifest editor. Under the Manifest Extras
control group, you should find a Uses SDK
entry. Select it. There is an Attributes for...
pane that will let you edit SDK attributes: Min SDK version
, Target SDK version
, and Max SDK version
If you are editing the XML source directly, look for the
<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="7" />
entry (mine says 7
). Change the value, or remove the entry to clear the attribute.
