B4A / B4J - No installation deployment

There are cases where you cannot run the installer as it needs administrator privileges.

It is quite simple to deploy these tools without the installer.

  1. Download innoextract: https://constexpr.org/innoextract/
    This tool allows you to unpack the installer files.
  2. Follow the instructions and download OpenJDK 11 + Android SDK + additional resources (last two are for B4A only).
  3. Run the IDE and configure the paths.
If you want to clone this configuration to other computers:

  1. Close the IDE.
  2. Find the ini file: C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Anywhere Software\
  3. Copy it to the IDE folder - the place of the executable.
  4. You can now clone this configuration to other computers, assuming that the paths are the same.
