Here is a work around for the problem when you click “Run App” (green arrow) and get the **Error: Please select Android SDK** in the Edit Configuration dialog.

I came across this error after importing a project (developed on my laptop) into Android Studio on my college office desktop from GitHub…

Error: Please select Android SDK

Here is a work around for the problem when you click “Run App” (green arrow) and get the **Error:

Please select Android SDK** in the Edit Configuration dialog.

Open:

  1. File /Settings/Appearance and Behavior/System Settings/Android SDK
  2. Look at the top for Android SDK Location path to your SDK  Edit
  3. Click the Edit button
  4. Hit Next, Next, Finish to accept the defaults

This seems to save away the SDK location – even though nothing has changed – into some internal location. I inspected the .idea and .gradle folders but didn’t see what Studio did to change a config file – but now I can run the app.

The above from here:
