Hi All...

I have B4A v6.8 installed, I can always connect to my Red Note 3 phone with B4A Bridge but some days I can download debug code, some days I cannot and it is really frustrating!

Log is below, any ideas?

Thanks

Andy.

Yes, it is a minute or so.

I am running W7, there are 4 adb.exe showing in task manager and if I do Tools -> Restart ADB Server I get another one.

After a while I get the 'Process is running longer than usual - cancel'

Will look to do the re-install when I find out how!

Thanks

Andy.

That's how I installed it in the first place...

But in the SDK Manager I have installed :-
SDK 25.2.5
Platform Tools 25.0.4
Build Tools 25.0.2
All API 25 except for Wear
All API 22
All API 19
Support Repository
Google Repository
Google USB Driver

Is there anything else I need or should I remove the Platform and Build Tools and re-install them?

There is something badly wrong in adb.

set ADB_TRACE=1

C:\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools>adb kill-server

It just hangs until ^C even if you have killed off any existing adb and Java process in Task Manager first.

Such an option might be added in the future.

Workaround:

- Go to C:\Windows\System32
- Copy rundll32.exe (explanation: https://superuser.com/questions/381103/is-there-a-windows-exe-that-does-nothing)
- Delete adb.exe from <android sdk>\platform-tools
- Paste rundll32.exe and rename it to adb.exe

The IDE will call the new adb.exe program that does nothing. This will allow you to use B4A-Bridge without adb.

Yes!

It worked - and the solution appeals to my sense of humour as well, as if there was ever a windows exe that did nothing ;)

Thanks

Andy.

Sorry to be back so soon...

I don't appear to be able to watch any variables, if I right-click on a variable the Add Watch option is greyed out and if I manually add something to the Watch text box nothing happens. If I then click the Remove All Watches then I get 'An Error Occurred Object Reference not set to an instance of an object.

And the Ctl-S option to update code does not appear in the Debug Window.

Makes debugging rather difficult!

Thanks

Andy.
