Edit This error happens to most of the beginners, the thing is that you have to add all your activities in the Manifest file.

Accepted Answer

It is a problem of your Intent.

Please add your Activity in your AndroidManifest.xml.

When you want to make a new activity, you should register it in your AndroidManifest.xml.

In my case I forgot to add the google maps library

<application>
    ....

    <uses-library android:name="com.google.android.maps" />
</application>

Also, check that you're not missing the preceding dot before the activity path

<activity android:name=".activities.MainActivity"/>
