Instrumentation failed for .apk file

Post by ShashankRaut28 » Mon Aug 26, 2019 1:58 pm

Hello Team,

We are trying to instrument and install an android apk of our application, but instrumentation wizard showing an error :

Instrumentation failed....

Please make sure that
- The APK is not obfuscated.
- You are using API level 8 or above.
- No uninstrumented APK version is installed on the device


And from the Details window found exception trace as :
