Error when running local server

When running the “java_dev_appserver.cmd --port=8888 --address=0.0.0.0 appengine/build/war/” command (I use .cmd and not .sh since I’m on windows) the shell responds saying that it cannot find the webapp directory appengine/build/war. I’ve followed all the instructions up to this point, so I am not sure what I could have missed.

The problem is that the appengine/build/war directory is not found in the current directory as it is a relative path. Either cd into the appinventor directory or enter a full/absolute path to war directory.
