I have seen that my Android IDE LogCat console keeps throwing the below stated error message, sometimes when i try to run the app on Emulator (especially one thats running Android Lollipop version 5.1 API 22), the Uploading stage takes a bit of more time and thus Launch canceled! error, when i try again sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't,

[2015-05-19 18:39:32 - example] Android Launch!
[2015-05-19 18:39:32 - example] adb is running normally.
[2015-05-19 18:39:32 - example] Performing com.example.example.CreateQuizActivity activity launch
[2015-05-19 18:39:32 - example] Uploading Example.apk onto device 'emulator-5554'
[2015-05-19 18:39:41 - Quizziuq] Failed to install Example.apk on device 'emulator-5554': timeout
[2015-05-19 18:39:41 - example] Launch canceled!

To resolve this issue you gotta increate the Timeout time value set in for ADB. This can be done by,

  1. Go to Window -> Preferences (if you are using Windows OS) or Eclipse -> Preferences (if you are using Mac OS X) or Android Studio -> Preferences (if you are using Mac OS X)
  2. Now goto Android tab,
  3. Select DDMS under Android.
  4. You would see : ADB connection time out (ms) : 5000.
  5. Change the value from 5000 to say 15000 or more.
  6. Click on Apply.
  7. Click on OK.
  8. Now try running the App again on Emulator.
