apk finalization failed error message

Post by SusanB » Sat Nov 30, 2019 4:25 am

When saving as a standalone I get the message: “There was an error while saving the standalone application apk finalization failed.” I’m on a MacBook Pro, Mojave, using LC 9.5.0 and followed the updated instructions to install Java 8 and use the most recent version of Android Studio.

Has anyone had this problem using this configuration?

I see that no one replied since then to your message.
Did you managed to solve it?

Sphere, thank you so much for asking!!! No, there have been no responses, and my apk is in a holding position. I'm truly stuck, and not moving forward with making necessary updates for my app in the play store. I would be eternally grateful for any help with this!!

You are most welcome.
With your setup, does this also happen to other stacks for mobile(Android)?
To see if it is a general setup issue or a single stack issue.

If yes:
-did you install the Android sdk via Android Studio or the command Line
-Is this showing correctly in your LC settings?
-on that same setting , do you also see the path to the Java JDK

I'm mostly on on Win10 but can boot into MacOs to see what is happening at my setup

btw:it can take a few hours before i respond, i'm in another timezone

***EDIT***
-is there any other text after that error message you got? can you provide a screenshot of the error?
I just created an APK and got also an error of copied files which it could not find, removed the entries and it build correctly.
So maybe a screenshot of the error gives some more hints.
thx!
