Thanks Ralph - so, I enabled the Livecode UI stacks in the pref window and then used the find window to search for the error string (or part of it at least) but no results were returned. I also had a poke/search around in a couple of rev stacks with Android in their names but I was none the wiser after that either.

At least I have one dev machine that it works on I guess. It used to work on the Macbook Air as well but something seems to have gone amiss along the way, probably when I was required to update my Android install. I thought starting from scratch installing Android Studio and making sure the correct SDKs were installed would help but the same error occurs.

    I've seen similar messages when building for mobile. I enable the IDE stacks in prefs then search for the error string and look at the result of the previous operation. Usually the reason for the fail is apparent. Not pretty but fast. (one of the advantages of having the IDE written in LCS)

    I’m having a problem building/testing an Android app on one of my two development laptops (Macbook Air, LC 9.0.2, OSX Yosemite) – it comes up with the following error message...
    
    Unable to build app for testing: could not compile service support class.
    
    It seems to work fine on another laptop with a similar setup (the only difference being that it is running OSX Mojave) – same Android Studio setup and Java version installed.
    
    Any ideas?
