This update greatly simplifies the installation of HAC and the Android SDK. It also adds some improvements and bug fixes.
HAC users now have the option of using an Easy Installer that can set up HAC and a basic Android SDK in 10 minutes or less depending upon the user’s internet connection speed.
During HAC’s first and subsequent runs it is now better at finding the paths to the Android SDK.
A new menu option “Android Emulators” now makes it easier to set up Emulators (also called AVDs).
An important bug has been fixed for non-English Windows systems that affected signing apps with a Private Key.
As mentioned above there are now two installers available for HAC.
The previous HAC Installer (now called Standard) required the user to either have the Android SDK already setup or to install it themselves. For beginner programers setting up the Android SDK can be daunting as it has many options and can take a few hours to download and fully install.
(1) Standard Installer is about 14MB in size and just installs HAC.
This should be used if you already have the Android SDK installed in your Program Files directory, you are happy with your current Android SDK installation or you are confident in your ability to install the Android SDK.
(2) Easy Installer is about 140MB in size and installs both HAC and a basic Android SDK.
It should be used if the Android SDK is not already installed and you want to get HAC running as quickly as possible. The Android SDK installed by this Easy Installer just installs API 9 (Gingerbread) but can be updated to include the latest or even older APIs.
For further details see the release notes accompanying HAC and the posts listed in our forums.
