Android SDK lesson

Good luck with that. For the last two people I helped on the Forum with
that issue, it turned out that Google had provided a version of Android
Studio where key build tools were missing. I discovered this after days of
investigation in trying to help people get their setup working and after I
uploaded a 300mb zip file to the cloud which the user used to replace the
relevant folder in his Android Studio installation. Google broke AS on both
Linux and OSX (and possibly Windows too).

You can see the big yellow warning callouts in the Lesson to which you
link. There's probably more replies to that Livecode Lesson than any
other.  I've advised LC Ltd on what I think they should do to simply the
install/setup for Android development.

Considering that Google broke the later versions of their tool and Google
hide the unbroken versions (not to mention the lunacy of Google's
naming-numbering), you are not going to find a one button solution from LC
that works around all those issues.

Regards, Bernard
