Hello all, I am trying to get an NDK sample to compile.
I want to develop Android software on Visual Studio and to do so I want to clone a project from one of the samples provided in the NDK. To keep things simple I am starting with hello-neon.
I am using Visual Studio 2019 and Windows 10.
I have already gone into Control Panel>System>Advanced System Settings>Environment Variables.
I have JAVA_HOME, ANT_HOME and NDK_HOME correctly set up.
I type File->New->VisualGDB Project . Then I choose “Android Project Wizard” and give the Project its name. Then I type “Add”.
I go into Configure NDK/SDK Locations. I give it Android NDK Path as “C:\ADev\android-ndk-r21”.
I believe I have the JDK and SDK path set up correctly too. I hit OK
I choose the third option “Clone a sample from NDK”. Then I hit ‘Next>’
I am given the screen called “New Android Project”. This is where I am expecting to see a list of the NDK projects but they do not appear. I get the error message “Missing NDK Samples”.
I have tried moving the hello-neon sample project around but no matter where I put it Visual Studio can’t find it. Similarly there is no way to find out where Visual Studio is actually looking for the NDK samples.
Any help much appreciated.
