@vk you have 2 options:

  1. create shortcut on desktop to “uiautomatorviewer.bat” which is in “…/Android/sdk/tools/bin/uiautomatorviewer” (path for mac. for windows similar something like: c:\users<username>\AppData\Local\Android\sdk\tools)
  2. add path to this folder into PATH variable and start uiautomatorviewer in console. (example - http://www.automationtestinghub.com/setup-android-environment-variables/ )

@Aleksei
hi, thank you
I tried both the options,but none of them worked


#4

@vk you “tried it wrong” :slight_smile: both should work. otherwise you did something wrong. for example was you able to find “uiautomatorviewer.bat” in android tools folder?


#5

@Aleksei
yes,uiatomatorviewer is available in C:\Users\vk\AppData\Local\Android\sdk\tools\bin,then i created a shortcut in desktop and even added the path in environment variables…


#6

@vk but when you click on this bat nothing started? did you installed JDK ? http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html - choose windows x64.

@Aleksei
yes jdk is installed, when i click on that bat file its showing error stating windows cannot find make sure u typed the name correctly.As, iam following this link for appium installation"http://www.automationtestinghub.com/setup-android-environment-variables/"

@vk well you need investigate more yourself… what problem is with your system


#9

@Aleksei
ok sure, Thank you for your quick response


#10

@vk one moment. when you did change in system. restart your console prompt. just close and start again to grab changes you made.


#11

@Aleksei
ok sure, thankyou


#12

This worked for me… thanks :slight_smile:

Unable to start uiautomatorviewer on Ubuntu machine. Need a solution and even it says android command is depreciated


#14

First go to Android SDK folder and find the uiautomatorviewer in tools/bin directory.

If you do not find tools folder you have to install it usind sdkmanager command because android command is depricated

follow this to install
