Go back to Qt4 tab, Build GDB, QML debuggers (Build All).

Open Project Files and go to Project->Run->Package Configurations Details->Application Libraries and check all.

You must save your session before shutting down your computer: System->Start-up Applications->Options, then check Automatically remember running applications before logging-out, and click the Remember Current Running Applications.

Don't forget to comment out the set orientation code, or it will have build errors.

Also, once you successfully run the application on the Android emulator, when you open your source code again, don't update it or you will lose changes you've made and you will have to re-install the Ministro and Qt libraries.
