This isn't an application that can be run via Run > Run / F5 / etc.

It's a wallpaper sample, so you have to go to the Android main screen (not app launcher), long-click on the background, tap Wallpapers from the menu, tap Live wallpapers, then tap the appropriate icon.
Comment 9 Jonathan Pryor 2011-11-17 17:09:51 UTC
We will update the LiveWallpaperDemo README.md with the launch instructions.

Today we have checked this issue on following builds :

XS 4.0.8 (build 2)
MFA 4.7.10

As this sample require manual intervention. And we are able to launch application manually. Hence closing this issue.

Changing its status to verified.
