I still hate Android Studio :( :( :(
Worked all morning on my project, debugging, no problem.
Now all of a sudden it crashes whenever I try to debug. java.lang.ClassNotFoundException - random classes.
But it runs fine if I just run the app.
I reverted to my last working commit, and it still does that. I restarted my computer. No luck.
I disabled Instant Run. No luck.
I tried to upgrade gradle to 3.3 - no luck. That's the extent of stack overflow suggestions for similar errors.
I am stumped. What has changed in the middle of a work-session when I have not changed any settings in the IDE, have not updated anything.
I made a website for a guy, been keeping a casual eye on it and it's fine, if boring.
Then he calls in a panic to tell me it's been hacked, there is porn everywhere and funny underlined words and I must fix it right now!
So I drop what I'm doing and access the site and it's fine. I use a few different devices and even a couple of different networks and can't see a thing wrong with it.
Then I spent half an hour on the phone trying to convince him that his own shady surfing habits are causing this on his computer only.
I get the feeling he didn't believe me because he hasn't paid the latest invoice..11
So my mom says her printer isn't working anymore. I sit and battle with drivers and mysteriously missing virtual usb ports for two hours, give up, we decide to buy a new printer.
Next day she says her scanner isn't working either.
It's only then that I notice her USB hub cable is unplugged.. aargh.
Explain to me what is in the 1.6Gb Adroid Studio download because I've spent the last 3 nights downloading a gazillion extra things over my 28 kbps satellite connection and I still have not managed to actually do anything yet.
Silly me, I thought if I get the Studio with SDK bundle that would be enough. Sigh.19
