The link itself works, in that it goes to a page. :)

But I have followed its instructions to install Android 9, and pointed 
my LC prefs to the folder shown in the screen shot, and LC reports:

   The chosen folder is not a valid Android SDK. Please
   ensure that you have installed it correctly, and enabled
   support for 9.0 (API 28)

When I run Android Studio it all seems to work.  But LC says it doesn't.

What did I miss?
