Android error, then project creation error

This has been a very negative experience so far. Trying out Titanium for the first time. Installed the latest on Win Vista 64-bit. Installed Android SDK (seems like all versions up to 2.2 are installed by default). Tried to create new app and also imported KitchenSink. In both cases, Android emulator will only load if you select SDK 1.0 but not newer versions, also loaded part of the way, showing the phone, but the app is not there and getting errors on the Titanium log. Then tried to reinstall Android SDK. Now Titanium would fail even creating a new project. In the Run Emulator tab, SDK is already loading and never find any version.

Is this really tested??? Does it really only work on Mac??? Do I need to buy professional support just to make it work???

  • 3 weeks and still no one answered with solution / suggestion. This tells you something about Titanium. Glad that I'm not in a hurry to develop my app. Will need to wait for Titanium QA to iron this out and may be try again in 6 months.

  • I had problems with Android initially. I installed the android SDK in my user folder…and it wouldn't work. Once I moved it to another folder it worked.

    • The problem is a lot more complex than that. Firstly, the Android SDK is in C:\android-sdk-windows. Nothing to do with user folder.

  • Any suggestion so far? Is this a known problem? Does this get answered by the staffs of Appcelerator or I have to pay for the professional version first?

  • There was a problem in the mobile login code that appeared due to a system change. That has been fixed see you you have better luck now.

    • What do I need to do to my installation? I just tried again but no luck. Ever since I reinstall Android SDK, the Run Emulator tab always show the SDK is "loading…" and nothing happens. Part of the problem is that it doesn't give me any feedback on whether it can't find the SDK, or if something is wrong with the SDK. Just no information.

  • Appcelerator is missing in action??? Still avoiding to answer this question?

  • i had this problem and I solved it by installing ALL android SDK releases in the ADK and then it worked. Don't know if it will solve your problem, but it worked for me.

    BTW: I am on a mac, don't know if that matters… good luck

    • Thanks for answering. We had a few people together trying on several Windows and several Macs. Basically, our conclusion is that trying to use Titanium on Windows with Android is a WASTE OF TIME. There are many possible problems and Titanium does not help to figure our why things are not working. It can work once, then you change something, it breaks. We try to figure out what's wrong, but everyone came up with a different theory. Even if you get it to work, it is like 10X slower on Windows, so no serious developer can be productive in such environment.

      We decided to just develop on Mac for iPhone first… when we are further along, then we will deal with Android (and many be Appcelerator will fix the problem by then).
