Debug certificate expired on 12/2/10 10:51 PM

I upgraded from IntelliJ IDEA 98.311 to IntelliJ IDEA 10.0 today. It's still EAP, right? 98.311 worked under my IntelliJ IDEA 9 license; with this upgade I switched to evaluation version 30-days - as it was suggested.

Now I can compile my existing Android application, but cannot run it: it gives me "Debug certificate expired on 12/2/10 10:51 PM" error. I tried to rebuild app, but it didn't help.

Any suggestions of how to resolve this issue?

    Thank you

It seems, this is a common issue related to all android building tools (IDEA, Eclipse, ANT)

Please, delete your debug certificate under

(on Linux and Mac OS X) (or
on Windows). IDEA then generate a new certificate when you next try to build a debug package. You can report this problem to the tracker (, and we'll look for workaround.
