Android Question Problem with FileProvider

I am trying to open a pdf on my app using an external app. I am using B4XPages.

I tried the file provider example provided in https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/class-fileprovider-share-files.97865/ and my app crashes immediately after the installation.

A quick check on the unfiltered logs came up with this.
Log:

Code to view pdf:
        pdfname = "1.pdf"
        Dim FileName As String = pdfname
        File.Copy(File.DirAssets, FileName, Starter.Provider.SharedFolder, FileName)
        Dim in As Intent
        in.Initialize(in.ACTION_VIEW, "")
        Starter.Provider.SetFileUriAsIntentData(in, FileName)
        'Type must be set after calling SetFileUriAsIntentData
        in.SetType("application/pdf*")
        StartActivity(in)

Please I need a solution, Thanks.

Looks like a similar problem I was having. Here's what I did:
B4X:
Dim in As Intent
in.Initialize(in.ACTION_VIEW, "1.pdf") ' <-- or URI to file
in.Flags=1 ' READ PERMISSION
in.SetComponent("android/com.android.internal.app.ResolverActivity")
in.SetType("application/pdf")
StartActivity(in)

1. The code above will not work.
2. Firebase has nothing to do with FileProvider.
3. Run the example as-is. If it doesn't work then your SDK is misconfigured.
