Someone else on the list had this problem within the week, but had a different subject for the thread. I believe their issue was some code or widget lurking around without proper inclusions. 

What version of Livecode are you compiling with? I’ve had the same problem recently with a stack that I’ve tried to compiler in 8.1.8. I fear I opened this in 9dp11 to see the new dataGrid2 in action and saved the stack without backwards compatibility. This isn’t strictly Android as I was building for iOS when the error manifested.
