tutorial - android studio ndk-build
Android NDK Default location (8)
I am used to previous versions of NDK builds which came in zip format. I downloaded the recent
r10 version for windows which had a .exe version. The exe version is just an extractor, that I didn't know and double clicked it. It didn't ask me for the location of extraction.
Now I want to remove this version and use a zip instead. How do I find on which location it was installed/extracted?
I tried looking to the
ANDROID_NDK system variable and I found my previous definition of r8 version.
for Android Studio 2.3.x(+) :
android-sdk folder was in
C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio\plugins\android-ndk
Be carefull: The ndk might not be complete, so make sure everything is up to date.
Android Studio 2.2 installs it in
C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Android\Sdk\ndk-bundle (on Windows 10).
I am using Visual Studio, but I also want to play with Android Studio. So, in order to get the Android SDK and NDK, I installed Android Studio.
Android Studio installed the SDK naturally at
The NDK folder is not yet ready, but is/will exist at
In order to flush out the folder with the actual NDK, I had to tell Android Studio to install the NDK.
File -> Settings
Select Appearance and Behavior -> System Settings -> Android SDK
Click on the SDK Tools Tab
Checkbox the NDK (And, I think, the LLDB and CMake options).
Now that NDK folder should be good to go.
I used Chrome to download it from Windows 7. It extracted here to my standard Downloads folder:
In Windows 10, It landed in
