    If you will use AdMob ads in your program then AdMob library requires Android SDK level 13 or above.

    If you make your program it will work also on your phone version 4.0. Don't worry

    help....

    hi,
    i crashed my pc and just installed it all back.
    b4a is now on.
    however i have a problem with installing or setting the adons - for example net - i get error on smtp
    i copies net.jar & net.xml to libraries folder
    i just forgot how to set it

    it seems like it does not recognize the libraries folder
    i did point to it in additional libraries, i also tried to copy it to another location - nothing helps

    i think i am missing something, how do i add an external library ?
    any help ??

    -----------------------------------
    GOT IT...
    all OK

    Install

    Hi guys,

    since a few minutes I have the full version installed :D

    Reading "first steps" I installed Android and Java SDK in a path without blanks. At the first compile there was an error message to install b4a in a path without blanks either.

    I fixed that by re-installing... but...

    Why does the b4a installer suggest a path WITH blanks? By the way "Anywhere Software" is part of the suggested path and HAS a blank ;);););)

    Greetings from Germany

    In most systems it works with spaces. This issue only happens on a small number of computers.

    I have JDK v7. Is that compatible with Basic4Android ?

    windows 8







    "Basic4android requires .Net Framework 2.0 or above. " well in windows 8 for install Basic4android i need .net framework 3.5 to make the installer work , so windows 8 's .net framework 4 will not help you to make it work(installation).

    can you update any patch there to make it work with 4,so i will happy to uninstall .net framework 3.5 that's slowing my computer

    Which error did you get before installing .net framework 3.5?

    Note that you can have multiple versions of .Net installed and they should not slow your computer.

    Should AVD Target = Android 2.2 SDK (API Level 8)?

    I read somewhere that when creating an Android Virtual Devices (AVD) the target should always be set to "Android 2.2 - API Level 8" since B4A is designed to compile to that API.

    Is this still correct?

    No, this is no more correct.
    You can address Android API 17.
    The Beginner's Guide will be updated soon.

    Best regards.

    Thank you Klaus.

    I wonder how the B4A user can tell what is the maximum Android API level which is supported by the current B4A release?
     
  17. Erel

    Erel Administrator Staff Member Licensed User

    All Android versions (starting from 1.6) are supported.

    You can create a folder anywhere on your system, and call it whatever you like.

    Then in B4A go to Tools, Configure Paths ... and browse to the folder you created.

    But what goes in there? the other android API versions?

    I used Java before this on eclipse so I'm semi familiar with the concepts... just kinda feeling my way around b4a still
