Error: Target id 'android--1' is not valid.

  • Hi All,

    I am trying to build application on Android device using QT 5.4.2.
    I have done everything but I still get errors:

    tried also with android-ndk-r10e

    I have installed android-22 platform.

    But I am not able to compile android application on LG G3.
    It does not work also (no device detected) using AVD.

    Also there is no platform listed in:
    project_name->Projects->Build Steps->Build Android APK->Build Android APK
    There is blank list and unable to set anything.

    Could you please help?

  • I solved the issue but I am not sure what is the root cause.

    I edited the file located in project directory and changed:

    android--1 to android-22

    Closed the project and open again.
    Sometimes there is needed to repeat above steps again or more.

    Hope this may help for somebody.


  • @nagardd The root cause is described here:

    (in short, when android.bat fails to return (the list of the platforms) in 10 seconds, it is aborted, and the list of the platforms is not generated)

  • Hello All,
    I am getting the same build error: Warning: Android platform 'android--1' does not exist in SDK. The Android Build SDK pull down menu is always empty. I tried editing my project file to change android--1 to something valid, but it hasn't worked. Also, I get this same error with all examples as well. Could you tell me how to fix this? Thanks.

  • Hi, everyone! I have met this problem too.My operation system is ubuntu 14.04 64bit.When i install libstdc++6:i386 libgcc1:i386 zlib1g:i386 libncurses5:i386, and delete three files in ~/.config:QtProject Trolltech.conf QtProject.conf, then i reinstall the qt, it work.I hope it will help you.
