When do you get this message? What happens next? Have you downloaded the latest Android SDK tools as explained in the first post?

I have been using Android Studio to manage my SDK installation.

When do you get this message? What happens next?
I get the message in the app log window after I click on "Install Selected".
It stops at the line:
Warning: File C:\Users\James.SEF2\.android\repositories.cfg could not be loaded.
As another issue:
The AVD Manager tells me that there are no definitions available. It was working before.

This is a mistake. You need to follow the exact steps from the tutorial. You can install multiple copies of Android SDK.

Seems like a bit of a Department of Redundancy Department situation. :confused:
I now have 2 complete and alike copies of the SDK on disk.
Is it safe you use this copy with Android Studio?
Can I also update this copy alternatively in Android studio or must I now use the B4JsdkManager always?

Btw, it works now but finishes with
...
Info: "Install Google USB Driver (revision: 11)" finished.
done

Warning: File C:\Users\James.SEF2\.android\repositories.cfg could not be loaded."
in the log window.

There is no such feature. Why do you need to uninstall a component?

1/ create a sub directory named "AndroidEmulator" in C:\Windows and change its permissions to anybody (it should be a missing environment variable but on my part, Android_HOME or its path to the SDK never worked)
2/ to be sure XAHM was correctly installed, you can restart its installer from the extras folder. Alternatively, you can start haxm_check.exe in CLI to check if the requirements are ok
3/ I have both XAHM and Hyper-V running <- THIS IS NO MORE TRUE (I enter in a loop at restart after having installed Hyper-V when Xahm was previously installed)

Yes. The embedded SDK is not intended for usage by other applications and doesn't include all the required components.

Note that an improved version of this tool will be included in the next version of B4A.

Hello @moster67 : you are right and I have to edit my post about. It was right in the past : I had both running without doing nothing special.
To prove it I wanted to install Hyper-V on my new computer now and entered in a loop at restart
So I guess it is no more true

@moster67 : sorry to point to you at each message, I am on the mobile..
It seems to be an issue more with Hyper-V : I just reinitialized the computer because of the loop, installed Hyper-V without having Xahm installed so. And it crashes again. I will report if I find a solution
