Android error: Could not compile service support class

Post by Zood » Tue Nov 14, 2017 2:36 pm

Hey everyone,

My first time (trying) to deploy to Android and not going well so far..
I managed to exclude inclusions which are not supported by Android like Ask/Answer-dialogs but i keep getting a specific error whilst trying to build the standalone:
"There was an error while saving the standalone application Could not compile service support class"

Any ideas on what this could be?


Thanks in advance!

This is probably the most common error message – it generally occurs when your Android settings in LiveCode are not quite right. If you want to deploy your LiveCode app to an Android device, then you will need to install the Java SDK and the Android SDK on your machine.

I appreciate your fast answer!

By "Android settings in LiveCode" I assume you are referring to both the Android SDK settings in Livecode

and the Android SDK settings in Android Studio.

Is there a faulty setting somewhere or am I forgetting something?
Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure if Studio wants java 9. Try installing java 8 and see if you still have a problem.

And how would I install Java 8?
I tried installing Java 8 through their website except whenever I link the
Android SDK in the livecode settings it jumps to the same settings as I mentioned earlier.

Read thru this thread. It's what I went thru when I had the same problem. About half way down I explain about the java folder problem that fix this.
