Android "Launch" fails on Windows 8. Testing with Nexus 7. "Output Window" also causes the whole editor to freeze, after the error is thrown.
I am having trouble launching or packaging my project to Android. I am running Windows 8.1 and UE 4.7.2 on an Asus N550JV with an NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 750M with 2GB/4GB DDR3 VRAM video card. I have seen others have had similar issues, however, I tried to launch the editor as an administrator as was suggested, but the problem still persists.
Error: d:/Program Files/Android/ndk/ndk-build.cmd failed with args APP_ABI="armeabi-v7a " NDK_DEBUG=1
I have not used the nVidia TDAP, because I already had the Android SDK, JDK installed. I downloaded the latest NDK and Apache Ant. I am using a Nexus 7 (2013) Tablet with Lollipop installed.
Relevant log part:
Furthermore, in my experience the Editor is quite unstable. Each time I use the Android "Launch" option, if I choose "Show Ouput", I only have a few seconds after the error before I can close the output window. Otherwise, the whole editor will freeze and needs to be closed by the task manager. Moreover, It sometimes freezes while working with blueprints - e.g.: when trying to connect an array to a for each loop, deleting an asset etc(however, these events didn't happen as often).
EDIT: Also tried to push the app to my One plus One. I get the same error.
I just ran into this one and it looks like it's because the path to the Android NDK has spaces in it. Running NDK directly from the command prompt yielded:
