    All,

    I am a novice and this is my first post/question. Please correct me if I am posing the question at wrong place.

    I downloaded B4A few days before and tried installing on my 64 bit machine. I tried uninstalling java64 bit and reinstalling 32 bit version and made multiple attempts but there is no success.

    This morning I cleaned up my machine by uninstalling almost all softwares (except office and few critical apps). But again while installing i end up with the question due to contradicting statements on B4A website and B4A documentation.

    On B4A website (@ http://www.b4x.com/b4a.html) it states,

    "Select "Windows x86 (32-bit) or Windows x64" in the platforms list."

    In contrary to this,

    On B4A documentation - Beginners Guide (edition 2.9 updated on 2014.06.03) page 10, states that
    'Select "Windows x86" in the platforms list (for 64 bit machines as well)'

    I attached screen captures for reference.

    Since my earlier attempts failed, I want to clarify if I am doing right thing. IS there a latest guide available? I appreciate your inputs.

    Thanks in advance

    Both versions (x86 or x64) should work. Which error did you get?

    Thank you for the reply. I installed with X64 and working fine now. I wish someone update the document.

    I seem to have some teething problems on emulator but will explore it.

    I don't recommend you to use the emulator at all. Use a real device or a virtual machine such as Genymotion.

    Thank you for the advice. I installed Genymotion and it is indeed faster. But I am stuck with a question.

    I am able to load and run "MyFirstProgram" smoothly on device emulated by Genymotion. Happy until here. (so I think, my setup is correct. :-D)

    But when I tried writing a simple "Hello World" application, I am not able to run. I verified the folders for the availability of layout file and it exists. I tried giving complete path for the file but no success.

    Please help me. I attached screen capture images both for B4A and Emulator screens.


    Thanks in advance

    There is a breakpoint in line #27 so it paused the execution. Click on the red circle to remove the breakpoint.
