    I just updated to the new android 8 sdk

    It changed the location to platforms\androidx

    because it needed that location from anroid 8

    I can change the android.jar path but it does not work anymore
    because when want to connect designer it still locates the path to:

    Code:
    ---------------------------
    Basic4android
    ---------------------------
    An error occurred.
    Cannot find: C:\android-sdk-windows\[COLOR=
    "Red"]tools\adb.exe[/COLOR]
    Please configure paths (Tools - Configure Paths).
    Restarting ADB Server may solve this problem.
    Main - Tools - Restart ADB Server
    ---------------------------
    OK   
    ---------------------------
    my path settings
    C:\android-sdk-windows\platforms\android-4\android.jar

    adb.exe should be installed under:
    android-sdk-windows\tools\adb.exe.
    It is not part of any specific platform.

    android update 8 changes that location, so it won't work anymore

    android 8 automatically move the previous tools dir to:

    c:\sdk\temp\ToolPackage.old01

    this is the new location where adb.exe is located
    this holds:\
    adb.exe
    AdbWinApi.dll
    AdbWinUsbApi.dll
    emulator.exe


    I just moved the above file again to the tools and then it worked again, don't copy emulator.exe because android 8 uses the latest one

    My experience was different. When I upgraded to Android8 only the three adb files were moved to ToolPackage.old001 and I got a new version of adb.exe placed in the tools folder that is a slightly different size, 577,335 bytes created 1st October 2010, compared to the old one, 578,611 bytes created 7th May 2010. Curiously both say they are version 1.0.26.

    I guess I got the new emulator as all the files in the tools folder and its sub-folders are now dated 1st October 2010.
