Hello,

 

I am new to Corona and experimenting with building for Android.  For this, I took the example application "BalloonTap" and tried to build it using the instructions in the deployment guide.

 

In the 'Android Build Setup', the problem I'm having is that the password "android" is not working when I try to open the "debug.keystore" file from the build dialog. 

 

The message I am getting is that either the password is incorrect or the file is corrupt.

 

Am I looking in the wrong place or simply doing something wrong?

 

Many thanks for your help.

What did you pick for the alias on that drop down?

 

I just tested it and "android" is the password. It did make me enter it twice. But you have to have something selected in the alias field.

I am having the same problem as the OP. I used to run Corona on a Windows 7 machine and did Android builds with no problems, but recently rebuilt my machine with Windows 10 and this problem has now started.

 

I entered the password "android" and it doesnt accept that as the password. There is nothing to choose in the "Key Alias" dropdown. The list is blank. How do I populate it, and with what?

I managed to fix this since my last post. The problem was with the version of Java I had installed. I had installed Java version 7 (64 bit), but when I installed version 8 (32 bit) it worked. Not sure if it was because of version 8 instead of 7, or 32 bit instead of 64 that made it work. I suspect it was because it needed the 32 bit version. My machine is using 64 bit Windows by the way.

Yes john.m.greco you're right..

 

The only problem is the wrong java version installed in my machine.

 

The setps are if anyone else need it:

 

1. uninstall the java version from your machine(it may be 1 or more than 1 - just uninstall all)

2. uninstall corona sdk

3. download new supported java version from oracle and install it.

4. reinstall corona sdk.

 

That's it and you're done:)

 

If the problem persists then the version of java you installed isn't supported your machine then try another version. 

 

Thank you!

For Windows, you must have the 32 bit (i.e. i586) version of the Java JDK (not JRE) installed even if you're on a 64 bit version of Windows.
