Hi Alex,

This is because you might be building a project say Android 4.4.2 , but you don't have the required SDK i.e. API 19.

Go to your SDK manager and check if you have the required SDK downloaded. For safety download API 19, and 20 and then create the program again and see if you still get the error

Also where exactly have you put the SDK bundle folder the one you downloaded from Android website? On your desktop?
