Android [SOLVED] "Packages can not be built for the selected platform"

Good morning and good afternoon.

I need your help. I bought the GameMaker Studio 2 - MOBILE.
And I'm working on a project, which I'm about to finish. I've tried for some minutes to create the executable.

But still giving this error
"Packages can not be built for the selected platform"

Can someone help me? I started in GameMaker not too long ago and this is my first project, I had never tried it before. So I do not know if I have to configure and where.

Thanks for everyone's insight.

I would take a guess and say that you are trying to build for Windows (which you don't own) because you haven't changed the target in the top right of the IDE.

Have you setup SDKs etc ready for compiling to Android / iOS?
It doesn't "just work", you have to install the necessary tools for you to be able to compile for each target.

@rIKmAN , Thanks for replying.
Yes, I found the settings in Preferences and only one of them of the 3 were set. Only Android SDK, missing the android NDK and Java.
But even after setting the 3 options, it still gives the same message when I press Create Executable

Yeah that's it - I think it was probably targeting Windows which you don't own so can't create an executable for.
You can "test" on Windows, but unless you own the Desktop module you cannot create an executable.

Change this to Android and you should be good to go.

This guide will help you if you have any problems with the setup: https://help.yoyogames.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001368727-Setting-Up-For-Android
