I am running AI2U 64 bit on a windows machine using google chrome. I am going thru a series of video tutorials that I found on YouTube. Found here,
The authour is using the online MIT App Inventor site. But since I do not have 24/7 access to the internet I am using AI2U which allows me to run app inventor offline. I have gotten up to lesson 3 in that tutorial and everything seems to work well EXCEPT connecting to the emulator. I can get the emulator to run offline but I cannot seem to get the app that I am working on in the design view to RUN in the emulator. I just get the emulator welcome screen that says its emulator 2.43 but I am running app inventor 2.45. When I did go online and tried to update emulator I get a dialog box that says something like. “The AIstarter helper does not appear to be running. Need Help” With and OK button . If I press the OK button the dialog goes away and comes right but. BUT I HAVE run the AI2starter I can see its icon in the taskbar and the dialog that the icon executes in front of my desktop with the “Press CTRL-C to quit” in it. I am truly confused any help would be appreciated.
