I've installed the Stand-alone Android SDK from https://developer.android.com/sdk/installing/index.html. After, I've installed Titanium 3.4.2. After, I've done a setting of Android SDK installing the various versions I need. It completes correctly the work. But if you go on Window->Preferences->Studio->Platforms, I see an error message (see the attached file). What is my error? I've repeated the installation process 2 times with the same result. My best regards. Gaetano

    Hello Gaetano Scebba, Looks like you are trying to use Appcelerator's free platform Titanium Studio for your development. Great news is you don't have to use Titanium anymore. Appcelerator has made their free users to access to there new studio Appcelerator studio. First you need to register your free Titanium account in [here](http://www.appcelerator.com/). For an invite submit your mail address, and after 1-2 days you will be registered in the new Appcelerator platform. Now To download and configure the new Studio you need to follow every instruction in this [link](http://web.appcelerator.com/product/studio). First download the studio for windows. and install it. Now follow the instruction [here](http://web.appcelerator.com/product/cli) for installing node and installing Appcelerator CLI. If you have done everything so fer, you need Appcelerator SDK above 4.x to work with your newly install studio 4.x. So go to this link [here](http://builds.appcelerator.com.s3.amazonaws.com/index.html#4.0.0) and download the recent SDK and manually install the SDK. Now whenyou got the reply back from Appcelerator for your account verification, you will be able to open the new studio and log in there. After that follow the instruction [here](http://docs.appcelerator.com/platform/latest/#!/guide/Setting_up_Studio) for setting up studio. Also follow this [link](http://docs.appcelerator.com/platform/latest/#!/guide/Software_Locations_and_Environment_Variables) for setting Software Locations and Environment Variables. Hope this helps. Thanks.

    I've done a new try, but the result is the same. I've deleted any presence of Titanium and Android-SDK from my PC. I've reinstalled Titanium without install Android-SDK. After the installation, Titanium asked me to do the setting for Android and Blackberry. I've choosed the Android versions I need; Titanium has completed the installation. The result is the same: for Titanium the Android SDK is not installed. Ciao

    Hi Gaetano Scebba , Can you please post the output of the command
        ti info -t android -o json
    to help investigate the Android detection problem. Please make sure the following Steps : *Firstly* Check your android install location for any invalid folder names, mainly the build-tools folder or the platforms folder. In each folder they should both match a specific naming convention, for example 19.0.0 for build-tools or android-21 for platforms. *Secondly* Make sure that you have a build tools selected in the titanium config. This issue seems to be down to android.buildTools.selectedVersion not being set in the Titanium config. Simply add the following to the "android" section of your Titanium config (mine's is at ~/.titanium/config.json):
       "buildTools": {
           "selectedVersion": "xx.x.x"
    where xx.x.x is a version of the Android build tools installed on your machine (mine is 21.1.2). Thanks

    Regarding the output of the command "ti info", please see the attached file "TitaniumProblem2.docx". It does not run correctly: the properties of folder \program files\Common files\ is in the attached docx. The file "c:\users\gscebba\.titanium\config.json" is attached: it doesn't contain the "buildTools" directive. A question: the Android SDK must be installed BEFORE the Titanium installation? Thanks

    I forgot to tell you something about the folders. As I mention in the previous post, I've done a Titanium installation without a previous Android SDK installation. When I've selected (in Titanium configuration) the packages, Titanium has installed the following folders on the desktop, altough I've indicated the location to use (c:\android-sdk-win): system-images add-ons platform-tools build-tools tools platfoms Ciao

    Following the indications given by Appcelerator, I've: 1. Uninstalled Titanium 3.4, Android SDK, Node.js, Git 2. Downloaded the Appcelerator Studio 4.0: the installer has automatically installed the Prerequisites (Git, Node.js 3. Appcelerator Studio has downloaded and installed Android-SDK 3. Result: None is changed. Appcelerator Studio says [Android SDK Home] No Android SDK were found under the specified SDK location. It isn't correct: if you launch "Android" manually, you'll see all the packages... I've also followe the indications contained on http://docs.appcelerator.com/platform/latest/#!/guide/Software_Locations_and_Environment_Variables What do do? Ciao!

    Hello, Try re installing the Appcelerator CLI with this command
       [sudo] npm install appcelerator -g
    After then try another command as
       appc setup
    Which will install any other missing staff. Sometimes this problem occur due to CLI error. Also make sure your Node.js is upgraded. Thanks.

    I forgot to mention that the PC is member of a Windows Active Directory system. On my home PC it works fine. Ciao

    Hello, What version of Appcelerator SDK is installed? Try installing the latest stable version 4.1.0.GA. After that check if your Android SDK has the necessary build tools for compatible with The Appcelerator SDk. Go to your Android SDk folder/tools/android. Which will open Android SDk manager. It will check if u need any additional build tools. Install and after finish restart the studio. Check if the error still exist in the preferences. Thanks.
