Error While launching Appium- Unhandled error:Error: ENOENT, no such file or directory


I am using Appium 1.3.7. on windows .it was working properly few days back but today when i accessed it it gave me error " Unhandled error: Error: ENOENT, no such file or directory .

I googled it and came to know that this may be because of environmental variables. but i have set ANDROID_HOME and PATH correctl

I also upgrded it 1.4.0. but still the same error.

Can you guys please help me.

Doesn’t look correct, the semicolon should be there

Is your ANDROID_HOME = ‘D:\android-sdks;’ ? If yes, remove the semicolon in ANDROID_HOME and that will fix the path as well


Thanks Simon_k…it fixed the issue. code is running fine.
