Eclipse failing during Android "export signed application package"

Sometimes eclipse fails while processing the "export signed application package" for Android. The fail can appear as a generic error message “Conversion to Dalvik format failed error 1” or as a complete crash of the  IDE.

Even restarting eclipse doesn't seem to fix the problem. A simple solution I've found that works for me is this one:

  • Disable automatic project building
  • Clean the project
  • Export the package
  • Re-enable automatic building
This seems to work on both, Mac and Windows version, of eclipse.
Let me know if this works for you also.
