    +Derek Banas when I try to run a simple hello world program in emulator with minSdkVersion 10 and  targetSdkVersion 22. It gives error "unfortunately Hello_World has stopped. I made three style.xml, one to target API10 and lower. one for API 11 and one for API 14 and above just like you. Do I need to make more changes to run emulator. Thanks
