The following error occurs when I try to initialize SQL library. Anyone knows why??
Dim sql1 As SQL
sql1.Initialize(File.DirDefaultExternal, "Testing.db", True)


Error occurred on line: 46 (Main)
android.database.sqlite.SQLiteCantOpenDatabaseException: unknown error (code 1294): Could not open database

Based on the error the file Testing.db seems not to be there (File.DirDefaultExternal). Did you make sure it is available?
Did you copy th db from assets to this place before?

But the "TRUE" setting in sql1.Initialize(File.DirDefaultExternal, "Testing.db", True) tells it to create if necessary, isn't it @@

I have a feeling his target SDK is 23+ and he needed runtime permissions, but he is using defaultExternal instead of rp.GetSafeDirDefaultExternal("")
