Android Google Maps API v2 Authentication Failure

ShashShash INMember

I have followed every step for setting up the debug key from
I have gone through many forums and videos but I cannot find a solution to my problem.
When I run the app on emulator (Built Target " Google API v17") , The App runs, but in the Fragment assigned for Maps, Maps doesnot loads and Logcat says " Authentication Failure".
I had setup keys twice but that doesn't made any difference.
What could be the solution for this.

    Hello @Shash , @DonChen => don't forget to put api key and version INSIDE the tag application of your manifest and be sure about the creation of your android key with the key tool ..
    application android:label="MultipleMarker"
    meta-data android:name="" android:value=" KEY VALUE"
    meta-data android:name="" android:value="@integer/google_play_services_version" application


    i've delete the tag less more and less because not possible to see when i save the post
    hope this help
