Android error: Error generating final archive: Debug Certificate expired on [xxx]

I got this error when I tried to start my android application:


Error generating final archive: Debug Certificate expired on 2012-01-14 21:26 TestingAndroid Unknown Android Packaging Problem

I hadn’t been androiding for a while and I’d never seen this before. Luckily google could help me on this one, but I’ll put the solution here anyway:

  1. Go to %USERPROFILE%/.android
  2. Delete the debug.keystore file there
  3. Clean your project and rebuild
  4. Done!

The error should be gone now!
