Problem Description: 

 

Running DevTest 9.5.1 on MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, mod 2014), OSX 10.11.6

Installed Android SDK and Genymotion (and xCode 7.1).

Created a project called Mobile. In Workstation, did a right click/Import into the Data folder of ApiDemos.APK downloaded from docops.ca.com. The file appears in file section of Workstation.

However, when I try to create a Mobile Test by Recording, the ApiDemos (and AccountTracker) Android apps do not appear in the drop down. However, the iOS apps in that folder do appear.

Environment:  

DEVTEST 9.0.x

OSX 10.11.6  or  Windows

xCode 7.1

Cause: 

Please verify that you do not have ANDROID SDK tools version 25 installed. 

There is a known incompatibility with DEVTEST and SDK tools 25 which comes standard with the current android studio.  Once version 25 have been installed it is not possible to revert to a previous version - it is necessary to completely uninstall Android Studio and delete the previous SDK library and then install an older version.

Resolution/Workaround:

 install android-sdk_r24.4.1-macosx    for  Mac

 

android-sdk_r24.4.1-windows.xip   for windows.
