Problem with running processing android app in external device


I’m trying to build a simple App in processing and run it on my device samsung…

In procesing console I am getting the following error.

I’m not even sure what information would be useful in debugging this. Can you help?

Build folder: C:\Users\davef\AppData\Local\Temp\android1587529277536989285sketch :app:preBuild UP-TO-DATE :app:preDebugBuild :app:compileDebugAidl :app:compileDebugRenderscript FAILED

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

What went wrong: Execution failed for task ‘:app:compileDebugRenderscript’. llvm-rs-cc is missing

Try: Run with --stacktrace option to get the stack trace. Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output. Run with --scan to get full insights.

Here next suggest to regenerate your gradle file. No need to erase it, just move it to another temp location.

What code where you try to run? A simple sketch? First time running apps from Processing? Have you run apps from AS?


that is a problem with the build tools; firstly: verify that in your SDK/build-tools/26 or 27 directory you have a subfolder named “renderscript”; verify also that at the first level of build-tools/26 or 27 you have a file called llvm-rs-cc; if no, download (or update) with the SDKmanager your build-tools.
