Solving Android SDK Problems

Solving Android SDK Problems

Article for Video Here :

In my last tutorial, I showed you how to install the Android development tools. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to solve many of the Android SDK Problems you have recently sent me.

We’ll look at:

1. How to speed up the emulator
2. Solve the problem in which the Android SDK Manager could not find packages
3. Solve the Android SDK parse error problems
4. Solve the issue in which the emulator doesn’t execute your program.
And, much more….

If you have any other problems leave a comment below and I’ll solve them.

    I’m trying  to install xamerin for Visual Studio but it is giving problems about the sdk because I already have android studio installed which means I already have the sdk. so I believe there is a clash somewhere so It does not allow me to install. how do you go about solving this problem

  • Maha Khan

    I’ve installed, uninstall and then reinstalled Android studio a couple of times. I’m not able to access my SDK tools tab. I know I have a white space directory but I’m not using NDK to do anything. Why can’t I access it? I don’t know how to solve this problem. Please take a look at it through the following link:
