Error message when creating Android Virtual Device: "Target location is not inside the SDK"
I just started the Android course, and I'm trying to set up a new Android Virtual Device. I followed the video's instructions to a T.
Name = Android 41 Target = Android 4.1 API Level 16
But when I click 'Create AVD' I get this error message in the console: "Error: Target location is not inside the SDK. Failed to set image path properties in the AVD folder."
EDIT: Found a fix. It turns out that the Android SDK package they included with the course isn't the best one to use. Went straight to the official Android Development site for the package. Found this old thread which had some helpful info: https://teamtreehouse.com/forum/android-lesson-cant-run-initialsetupbat

Hi, Ben Just a friendly fyi, I just tried creating an avd manager and it gave me the same error. It looks like the bundle package is still not updated. Thanks,
