Android : Installation error: INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_MANIFEST_MALFORMED



I recently ran into the error "INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_MANIFEST_MALFORMED" while trying to run my android project on Emulator,

[2014-11-19 15:28:41 - AndroidApp] Android Launch!
[2014-11-19 15:28:41 - AndroidApp] adb is running normally.
[2014-11-19 15:28:41 - AndroidApp] Performing com.example.android.MainActivity activity launch
[2014-11-19 15:28:41 - AndroidApp] Automatic Target Mode: Unable to detect device compatibility. Please select a target device.

[2014-11-19 15:28:43 - AndroidApp] Installing AppName.apk...

[2014-11-19 15:28:43 - AndroidApp] Installation error: INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_MANIFEST_MALFORMED
[2014-11-19 15:28:43 - AndroidApp] Please check logcat output for more details.
[2014-11-19 15:28:43 - AndroidApp] Launch canceled!


There was noting wrong (no stack traces or error messages) detected in logCats, nor there was any error in the Project folder itself.

But the error message is self explanatory to point out that the Manifest file has malformed.

So just checked the AndroidManifest.xml file to look for the reason, i found that there was an tag with no attributes, i just removed it and the app worked fine.

I hope it helps someone who is facing such a issue.
