I recommend switching to the latest command line tools + Android SDK. This means that you need to download a new SDK. You can keep the previous one as well.

Instructions:

  1. Download command line tools v6609375: https://developer.android.com/studio#command-tools
  2. Unpack in C:\Android
  3. Download additional resources: https://b4xfiles-4c17.kxcdn.com/b4a/resources_9_20.zip
  4. Unpack in C:\Android. It should look like this:

  5. Set android.jar path in the IDE to: C:\Android\platforms\android-30\android.jar
  6. Note that you don't need to run B4A Sdk Manager at all. All the required components are included. If you do want to run the emulator then start Tools - B4A Sdk manager, install the recommended items and create a new AVD.

I have downloaded no 1, downloaded file only have 2 folders under tools folder, bin & lib, no folders proguard an support. is this the correct one?

There is already folder C:\Android in my PC, should it delete / rename and create new folder for this new command lines?

Hi. I have a problem with the layouts in the beta. It worked perfectly in version 10. The application is using B4XPages. As you can see in the photo in the pages I have placed the ads at the bottom, and in all of them I have cuts. Attached image of the layout and the result in the emulator.

I also have the same question as in #68

I downloaded command line tools from #1
  1. Download command line tools v6609375: https://developer.android.com/studio#command-tool

    But when I opened this zip file there are only 2 folders under tools - bin & lib, no folders proguard an support. is this the correct one?

    Please see an attachment

    Also see another attachment that shows file structure for current command line tools (for B4X version 10) on the right and new command line tools for Android9 on the left.

    It shows what is missing. I tried 2 times download this new command line tools, tried to open it with Windows Explorer, with Total Commander - the same result. Am I missing something?

Unzip it with 7zip. Worked for me.
Thanks for your replay - that's what I see if I open it with 7zip - as you can see there is no difference. Tried WinZip, WinRar, Windows Explorer, Chrome browser, 7Zip also tried to open the same zip on my mac - no difference at all.

Extract it in your existing c:\android and see if it works.
I'm using B4A Ver 10.0 At least it works and I don't want to get stuck with non-working IDE.
What did you get when you open this zip with 7zip? Can you put a screenshot? Or maybe you can attach a zip itself?
