Problems with Android SDK - Files missing, layout files missing, lots of things not matching up to the videos
I installed the Android SDK, ran the SDK manager and installed the latest packages for the SDK. When I'm creating the Crystal Ball app, I am missing everything in the layout and src folder. There's no default files (haven't downloaded project files). There is no default "hello world" application either. Can someone please help me out?
JRE and JDK are both installed. tried re-installing the SDK after uninstalling. Tried moving it to root C drive.
As of now, the new SDK and Eclipse are in a root C drive folder called "Android SDK." The SDK manager does not run anymore and Eclipse is telling me that there is no directory for the SDK. It's missing the "tools" folder according to Eclipse.
Can someone help me out? I feel like I need to buy a new computer :( - I am currently running Windows 8.1 64 bit.
It sounds like you need to use the code from the course. What I did is download the zip file (Project Files under 'Downloads), and unzip it.
Then in Eclipse, choose File > New > Project. Choose the 'Android' folder and 'Android Project from Existing Code'. Click 'Browse' for Root Directory and choose the folder that you unzipped.
Hopefully this helps!
