Unable to start application - Android mobile application

Hello,

Since yesterday when I want to execute a Mobile test on my android application or if I use the mobile spy object I have my mobile application which opens then which closes with the error message “Unable to start application”, below the logs when I I use the Mobile Object Spy.

Il I use another APK in Objet spy (in application file field) and i switch to my application in the mobile then I can see all the object of my application… weird…

It’s like it is was waiting for the “FirstActivity” but it didn’t find it ?! What is happening ?

Thank you for your help.

Appium : 1.15.0
Katalon : 7.2.1

@olivier

Please try this solution:

Well,

My appWaitActivity was already set correctly with *
So, I just deleted the AppWaitActivity and restored the same setting and now it works !!
Thank you !
