I am starting android application development, and connected htc wildfire, started its sync software. And clicked on Application Installer. And it gives following errror message:

your phone is set to block installation of applications not sourced in android market

So I want to know that what settings can I change to unblock installation of applications from my pc. And from eclipse. I actually want to test applications developed by me.

You need to enable Unknown sources in the android settings (on my device it is in the Security section). Also enable USB debugging in Developer options.
