Hi,

If you’re using the Android Studio Download the SDK is most likely within the .app bundle (which is basically just a folder) or will get installed after opening Android Studio for the first time.

Alternatively you can follow these steps:

  • Download “android-sdk_r24.0.2-macosx.zip” from http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html#Other and extract it (e.g. to /Development/Android-SDK)
  • Open the “android” binary from within the “tools” directory (most probably with a right click -> open as it is not signed by Google) & press the button “Install x packages”
  • Download the Android NDK from https://developer.android.com/tools/sdk/ndk/index.html (you can use the 32 bit version as some V-Play community members reported an issue with the 64 bit download) and extract it (e.g. to /Development/Android-NDK)
  • Open Qt Creator of your V-Play installation, open the preferences and add the SDK & NDK paths (see above) (the JDK location should be something like: /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/CurrentJDK/Home)
  • Restart Qt Creator to auto-set up the Android kits

Please let me know if this solves your installation problem.

Best,

Alex
