All essential packages installed for all installed Qt versions error

  • @drapoel Check the following file <QT_INSTALL_PATH>\Tools\QtCreator\share\qtcreator\android\sdk_definitions.json (Windows)
    and confirm if the versions defined in the sdk_essential_packages and specific_qt_versions are installed in your system.

    Moreover, this messagebox appears continuously:

  • Made a completely fresh install. The same error is still shown in the options, but my Android builds seem to be working now. Marking as solved for now.
