Search the community for AAPT execution failed to find several threads about that issue together with tips what can be done


You had strange characters in two places ...

AAPT_Error (1).aia (2.8 KB)

Removing the two characters enabled the build.

Are you working cross-language?

The issue was most likely the literal backspace character (ASCII 8) in the AppName property. The AppName is put into the AndroidManifest.xml file, which AAPT then processes. Since XML does not allow for ASCII control characters (those in the range 0x00-0x1F) with the exception of tab, carriage return, and newline, AAPT will fail to process the XML file correctly.

@CarrotPumpkin could you please describe your AI2 environment, including

  • language
  • browser
  • desktop O/S
  • unusual keyboard habits?

This is the first time I have seen Backspaces sneak through into text.
