Compiling & Running Android App in Qt : Path Error

  • I am attempting to compile and run an android app in qt but getting weird errors. I have exhausted all other means to solving this problem and was hoping someone could help

    My compiler spits this out

    If someone has ran into this problem and has a solution I would appreciate it

  • @elrio400 I see this "The system cannot find the path specified". Make sure the path for Android SDK, NDK, JDK and Ant is configured properly.

    One note: you should really avoid paths containing spaces like in the path above! Such paths are a constant source of troubles. Also avoid characters lile ( and ).
    Also I see you're using ant - you should switch to Gradle - you just need to activate it in QtCreator.
