Livecode needs ARM architecture but your emulator is set to use x86. If you change the VM to use ARM it should work, everything else looks good.

I'm frustrated using livecode for android.
can we use it without creating a virtual device?
ARM architecture is very heavy on my computer

I can't say for sure, but I seem to remember one of my friends whom I pointed to Lc saying he skipped the virtual device altogether for testing, and would load it directly onto his device.

The fastest way now is to load the apk directly to the phone. I used to transfer via Dropbox but that's more steps.
  • Make sure standalone settings has Android selected and that your mainstack has focus. Use the charging cable to connect the phone to the computer.
  • Look in the Development menu - > Test Target and you should see the phone ID listed there. Select it.
  • Chose Test from the Development menu, or click the Test button in the top panel.
LC will build the apk, install it directly on the phone, and launch it.

Thanks Jacque,

I should RTFM (Read the Fine Manual) - I read it in the release notes probably a year ago even though it was added to in version 7.1.2 nearly three years ago - I only moved from 6 series about a year ago - skipped 7 and 8. - I have "Comfortable shoes" syndrome, and if it ain't broke why fix it until it is?

The Problem is if I don't use a new feature while fresh in the old noggin it seems to go to the Bitbucket - Not this time though thanks to you.

Thanks again Jacque

I'm afflicted with the same syndrome, but bug fixes and new features keep pushing me forward. It is, however, the main reason I haven't learned LCB yet. :-)

Yes, I do it multiple times per day. If you describe what is going wrong, maybe we can help.

We need to know how it fails. Do you see an error message? Does LC complete the build but fails to open the emulator? Does it open the emulator but does not open the app? What exactly fails?
