Android Setup

From RadPHP XE2 Documentation
Jump to: navigation, search

Before you can build your mobile application for Android, you will need to setup Android SDK and some additional software. RadPHP includes an installation wizard to ease this process. In the folder or CD where you first run RadPHP installer, you will find this wizard under the name android-setup.exe.

So, run android-setup.exe and let it guide you through the installation process.

When you run the installer, you will be required to provide administration permissions. Your current user must be the administrator and you must provide administration permissions with it. Do not provide administration permissions through a different user account.
