How to get rid of “SessionNotCreatedException”

Hi Lakshya,

While I run my test, I am getting the below exception:

Exception in thread “main” org.openqa.selenium.SessionNotCreatedException: A new session could not be created. (Original error: Bad app:

    It got solved and the problem was in the apk file path and apk file name.

    Make sure, before running the script we should mention the appropriate path for apk in both device and your system.
    Give the exact apk file name.

    Hope this will help.
