    I had to get a new computer and this new one has Windows 7 on it. It took a while for Eclipse to even work, so I have been fighting with this for a while.

    My problem now is that my API map key won't work. So-much-so that it doesn't even error, just pop the MapActivity up for a second and then close right back down.

    I did the same steps I did before on XP to get it to work: keytool>get MD5>apply for key>put in XML file. If I delete a character from the key and put an incorrect one in the MapActivity will load, but I get the grey tiles (because it is the wrong key). But even when I put the right key in the activity closes down without an error.

    Has anyone else run into this problem with Windows 7, or at all for that matter?

    I am hating this new OS more and more as time goes on.
