Android Question aapt.exe not where expected

Hi
I have just installed the latest version of Andriod studio (2.2.3) to work with B4A.

However as I try to experimentally recompile an existing (and working) project the B4A compile report complains :-

Cannot find: C:\Android\Android Studio\plugins\platform-tools\aapt.exe
Please configure paths (Tools - Configure Paths).

When I search for this file in a terminal using dir c:\ aapt.exe /s it confirms that this file does not exist where B4A expects it to be (ie the above dir).

The dir search however finds the file in :-
c:\Documents and Settings\myname\AppData\Local\Android\sdk\build-tools\25.0.2
c:\Users\myname\AppData\Local\Android\sdk\build-tools\25.0.2

As I am new to both these applications I would be grateful for any help in resolving this problem.

Many thanks

Tom

Android SDK is not Android Studio.
You dont need Studio to work with b4a.
But you need a correct Android SDK installation.

Install Android SDK and change the path to the sdk installation. NOT inside the android studio
