android trouble on winXP
« on: 2017-Nov-04 »
Hi! i am back on XP since my win7 machine died, and win7 became expensive. Back with a lovely game I would like to check on an android tablet.
When I compile for android I get:

*** Configuration: ANDROID ***
GPC - GLBasic Precompiler V.10.037 SN:95ed84a0 - 3D, NET
Wordcount:8 commands
*** Finished ***
Elapsed: 21.8 sec. Time: 21:48
Build: 1 succeeded.

What is going on? I read and applied all 3 pages of the forum to no avail.
I never see a Q: drive, my "E:\GLBasic_v14\FOO\distribute\Android" never contains a /bin nor a *.apk.
Strangely this win XP self-rooted in E:\ when installing. Is it a problem?
ant is installed and replies properly "xml is missing". (see the difference between a black ant and a green robot.)
adb is working too, does recognise the tablet.
I have set the SYSTEM variables ANDROID_SWT, ANDROIDSDK, ANT_HOME, JAVA_HOME (E:\Java\jdk1.6.0_29).
What can be wrong now?
XP has no E:\users\... folder do i need to make one?
During the making of everything, which batch files are called? -so I can manually check that each (batch script) call and location is correct?
Thank you!

Hi There

Make sure your AndroidManifest.xml file is correct format.

Also, have you got the right Android SDK installed at the right location?

Also Android Extras now using Android 5.0 SDK, which require Windows 7 and up. So sorry..... your Windows XP is too old im can support you.

Q: happens often when the installation is on a drive with a spacebar in, but its should compile it anyway.

But a least you need to upgrade your old XP system.
