    Hello. I did a reskin/recode of Flappy Bird and I am now trying to test my first Android app on my Android device.

    I am getting an error. This is what I got:


    VPApplication: no such file or directory

    I get the same error for QApplication and QQmlApplicationEninge if I remove the VPApplication


    Anyone got a clue? I want to figure this out so bad! :)

    Does this also happen when you create a new “Empty V-Play Project” from the game project wizards and try to run it on Android?






    Yes I am getting the same error in a empty project:


    This is the Compile Output for the error on the game (not the empty project):

    I followed up to you via E-Mail.





    I have same problem. Can you explain the solution you found ?

    Hi Burhan!

    First of all, please make sure that you correctly installed all required Android Tools (SDK, NDK, …), added the Qt Android Kit with the V-Play Maintenance Tool and that everything is up-to-date.

    Also, please have a look at the Qt Creator settings for Android:
    In the settings under “Build and Run – Kits” and “Build and Run – Qt Versions” Android Qt Kit should be listed without errors.
    The “Android” tab in the settings should hold the correct paths for NDK, SDK and JDK. Also see if the “Use Gradle instead of Ant” setting is checked and that gradle is enabled for the project as described here.

    Did you find any problems there?



    Hi Günther,

    I deleted VPlay and reinstalled it.

    Now its updating Android tools.

    Thanks for your help.




    Hi Günther,

    All works well
