Android Testing/Compiling (could not set current directory (errno 3)

Hi everyone,

When I compile or test the game on android the compiler fails at this stage:

"C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe /c "subst W: "Z:/gamename\Android\Default" && W: && cd \com.company.game && "X://android/runner\gradle\gradlew" build  assembleRelease  lint  ""

* What went wrong:
Could not set process working directory to 'W:\com.company.game': could not set current directory (errno 3)
One thing I noticed, Game maker is not creating the sub directories it used to make before (W, Z, X) partition things.

I'm using IDE v2.3.0.529 and Runtime

this is quite late to the party, but I just came across the same problem - my game kept crashing on Android with nonsensical error messages... It could be caused by Android Studio - here's what could help:

Follow below steps.

  1. Close android studio.
  2. Delete the .idea folder on your project folder.
  3. Start android studio and open your project. worked for me.
