YAIL compiler - AAPT execution failed.

Even if I delete all the blocks, an error appears
So is the component the problem?

How can we tell if you do not show your blocks or share your aia project here?

Hello 111565

I have a check list of things that you can go through: Cannot Build/Install/Run APK

Firstly, I want to ask, Are you using appinventor site or your localhost instance ?

I just deleted all blocks, all png files and all components, but the error keeps popping up

Similar questions are discussed in the community here

A most common reason for the error is use of a custom icon for the app of improper dimensions.

Can't the original checkpoint file build to the original file?

I didn't add an icon to the screen

It builds OK here. However I did have to rename the aia file because it was all numbers....


Perhaps this is your issue ?

I will direct message you with a link to the apk for you to download (next two hours)

This is the issue. I renamed aia and compiled ok

Some of your images are way to big in pixelsize for a phone screen.


It was solved by adding a to the name of the number Thank you very much I will bow down to that place three times a day in the morning
