Running my project in Android Studio


#1

I’m following the tutorial here. After adding the SDK and NDK path I get the following error when I try to save my project:
“Failed to create symlink from C:\Users\chaissonl\Documents\pointMotionMobile\Builds\AndroidStudio\app\src\main\jni\source\Controller\Communicator.h to C:\Users\chaissonl\Documents\pointMotionMobile\Source\Communicator.h!”

Does anyone know what might be causing this error and what I can do to remedy it?


Android NDK windows

This could happen when you don’t have the rights to overwrite files. Try deleting the dest files (if they exist) manually and see if that solves your problem.

Because you are using Windows, you have to run the Projucer as Administrator to save your Android Studio project.

See this thread. You are likely to hit other issues with Android Studio as it does not work very well on Windows unfortunately. I highly recommend to switch to Ubuntu or a Mac.

Hey Timur,

Switched to Mac. I am now getting error “failed to find Build Tools revision 23.0.1” when attempting to launch my project from the Projucer.

Thanks for your help!

Download that SDK with sdk manager
