I'm very new to the ionic framework,how ever I've cordova up and running in the windows 7 system but now I'm trying to build an android app with ionic framework and i followed the following steps

>npm install -g cordova
>npm install -g ionic
>ionic start resistance blank
>cd resistance
>ionic platform add android


Till here I'm doing good but when I run the command

>ionic build android


i get the following error

C:\Users\vishwant\resistance>ionic build android

I notice that the path is incorrect , but in the path variable I've set up correctly i.e till tools.


Error: ENOENT, no such file or directory
'C:\adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20140702\sdk\tools\tools\lib\build.template'


Firstly,I don't understand why it's attaching one more tools\ and searching for the build.template
Secondly, If i manual create that extra tools\ folder inside the tools\ (which i want to avoid) then this above error is gone but i will be shown

C:\Users\vishwant\resistance>ionic build android

Since I've already installed android sdks and the targets 4.4W which is working fine for the cordova projects, I don't understand why it's failing for the ionic framework.

Please correct me If I'm missing out something.

Thanks

Answer

I guess it's because you set ANDROID_HOME to the wrong path.

ANDROID_HOME must be set to the root of the android SDK, not to tools folder:

SET ANDROID_HOME=C:\adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20140702\sdk

But the tools folder must be in the path.

SET PATH=%PATH%;%ANDROID_HOME%\tools

(of course use windows settings to set env vars, don't do it in cmd, that was just to explain more clearly)
