Android Studio tips, tricks & known issues


#22

Thanks @fabian! My main question was, if AndroidStudio with Juce under Windows is still discouraged (as the sticky post still says this).
I got it running meanwhile under Windows 10 with the defaults (=min. SDK 23) but with an Emulator with API 25.
With API 23 emulators (tried 2 different ones), even the hello world example under Windows crashes reproduceably (with juce A/libc: Fatal signal 11 (SIGSEGV), code 2, fault addr 0xeaeef000 in tid).

So I would say, Windows might work now, but we should use an emulator >= API25.
Does this sound reasonable?

Yes, that sounds very reasonable. In fact, I’ve always had issues with the emulator under windows - especially when trying to use opengl: any app using opengl (like JUCE) would just crash (probably the crash you are seeing). I then started using the built-in VM of Windows Pro (which supports Android) and that seemed to work a bit better. But haven’t tried newer API versions in the android emulator. Thanks for the tip.

Hi Fabian, any more details on this? thx

Just fire up the Android emulator from Visual Studio. You will need a Windows Pro license though.

Sounds interesting, thanks for the tip :slight_smile:


#27

Interesting. Is that in community also or just paid versions?
