    We have an Android app which we wish to run tests on using Test Studio. I used the android application configuration menu within Test Studio on the APK my development team gave me, and when I tried to open the app I simply saw the splash screen for less than a second, then it closes. The interesting thing I discovered on closer inspection is that the APK Test Studio generated was about 15MB smaller than my original, which tells me that something is very wrong with the process. These are the steps I had to take to get to this point:

    1. When I first pointed Tesk Studio to the location of my Android SDK, it told me that "aapt.exe" could not be found. To resolve this, I moved everything from the "24.0.2" directory inside the build-tools directory up into the build-tools directory.

    The next error message I got was "Android build tools not found". My solution (suggested by someone on your forums) was to edit my MtAPKProvisioningSettings JSON file (located in C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\ArtOfTest) to include this: "AndroidBuildToolsVersion":"24.0.2". The field had previously been blank, like this: "AndroidBuildToolsVersion":"".

    Hello Selby,

    Thank you for contacting us. What I understand from your description is that you managed to configure your app but it still cannot be tested since it is not starting for testing on a device. Please correct me if I am wrong. 

    As I shared to you to a previous query of yours Xamarin applications are not officially supported for Android. though it might work but we would need the logs from the Log Cat to determine what might be causing the issue. Please also note that the Visual Studio you need to use should be version Enterprise 2015. 

    I am looking forward to hearing from you.
