    I believe only Android Studio is supported with BB 2.3.3.
    @ZackGriset can confirm?

    Hi, it is not possible to create an exported game with BB 2.3.3 in Eclipse, I'm sorry.
    What's wrong with installing Android Studio?
    For a long time people have complained, because Android Studio is not used since Eclipse is very old.
    In order for the game to load faster and play new functions, it is exported to be compatible with Android Studio.

    You can try to create the APK in Eclipse, watching some videos about Gradle, but I do not think it works.

    I think BB 2.3+ exports to eclipse when building for Amazon App Store. Play around with that if you really want to

    No, Google is no longer supporting eclipse. All the focus is on Android Studio now. I used to program with Eclipse and I loved it, but I honestly think Android Studio is better and more user friendly. Check out this article that talks a little bit about Google moving away from Eclipse here.

    Yes, that is correct @Walid. Thank you for mentioning that!

    Why would you need this? Eclipse support has been depreciated for Google App publishers. You'll have problems down the road if keep using Eclipse for whatever reason.

    I have to agree with this. You can check the article I linked up as well. Android Studio is the way to go now.

    @jcalle Can we generate signed APK using Android Studio (3.2.1) and It will be supposed to be run.
    I am using BuildBox(2.3.3) and Android Studio is not compatible with Java 1.7.
    So, which java version I have to use? 1.7 or 10

    You will need to update to the latest version 2.3.7 in order to ensure Android Studio will work for you. Otherwise, I'm not able to be of any help.
    Not sure why you're still on such an old version. Is there a reason for that?

    Android Studio will work with Buildbox v2.3.3, as Zach mentioned in a previous message on this thread, however you need to download the latest Java SDK.

    I downloaded Java 10 but it shows an error with a message
    {Could not determine Java version using executable C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-10.0.1\bin\java.exe}

    Yes, you are right but when I embedded the recommanded or built in path of java then it show error with a message
    {SDK location not found. Define location with sdk.dir in the local.properties file or with an ANDROID_HOME environment variable.}
    I set the environmental variable as well as local.properties

    Android Studio is very picky about a few things, it is just one of the many reasons I quit developing for Android.
    Android Studio really should be installed in C:\AndroidStudiox.x directory. x.x is the Android Studio Version number. Is that where you installed it?

    Ok kool, because there is no workaround to get 2.3.3 to work. It is no longer supported. If you have any other issue, just tag me in your post.
