    Hi, As i am new to titanium sdk, don't know how to run the "ti setup check". Will you please tell me how to check that ? And i am working on windows platform.

    Just open your command line, then run "ti setup check". It will tell you what kind of error you may have for configuration.

    HI, It seems something wrong with Android tool, would you please provide full console log when you run app, as it may provide more info about the android error, remember to switch console mode to track ( on the up right conner of console window). On the other hand, I recommend you the read our doc for studio, that will be helpful to address most of problem. http://docs.appcelerator.com/platform/latest/#!/guide/Installation_and_Configuration Regards, Shuo
