What is your ionic info output?

please check, I have updated my question

I just tried to build the project in my friends computer and it works fine, but not on my laptop for some reason. What could be the reason? any debugging steps? I created entire ionic project and installed Android Studio, installed API level 25 as per ionic requirement and now trying to build after adding android platform. The issue is from my laptop side. what could it be?

Old, should be updated.

Strange, here something should be listed.

What does ionic cordova platform list return?
What does ionic cordova requirements return?

I upgraded my Ionic CLI to 3.19.0

ionic cordova platform list : returned

nothing

ionic cordova requirements : returned

Requirements check results for android:
Java JDK: installed 1.8.0
Android SDK: installed true
Android target: installed android-27,android-26,android-25,android-24,android-23
Gradle: installed C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio\gradle\gradle-4.1\bin\gradle

The batch file cannot be found.

Then you should not be able to build for Android.

What command are you using to do so?

This is what it returned. I guess it showed nothing because CLI was updating:

> cordova platform ls
Installed platforms:
  android 6.2.3
Available platforms:
  blackberry10 ~3.8.0 (deprecated)
  browser ~4.1.0
  webos ~3.7.0
  windows ~5.0.0

Does ionic info now return that as well?

Current version is 6.4.0 - you should upgrade to that.

Yes, ionic info returns that aswell:

How to upgrade to 6.4.0? is this my phone or what 6.2.3? because its everywhere shown

New Issue after upgrading to 6.4.0

Execution failed for task ‘:mergeDebugResources’.

Error: java.util.concurrent.ExecutionException: java.lang.RuntimeException: No server to serve request. Check logs for details.

For documentation and future readers:

ionic cordova platform remove android
ionic cordova platform add android@6.4.0

Post your current ionic info again and more important the complete error message.

You wont believe I removed
Android studio using control panel,
Android folder from Program Files.

I even removed
.Android,
.Android Studio3.0, and entire Android Folder from
AppData/Local/

And Reinstalled Android Studio but I still get this error :confused:

This is not 6.4.0.

Why did you do this? What indicates a problem with Android studio?

I did upgrade to 6.4.0 before removing everything, it gave below error.
I can upgrade it 6.4.0 but then it would give below error. My project is fresh, new and untouched. Why build is having this issue? I cant even print stacktrace using --stacktrace.

Error:java.util.concurrent.ExecutionException: java.lang.RuntimeException: No server to serve request. Check logs for details.

Error:Execution failed for task ':app:mergeDebugResources'.

Error: java.util.concurrent.ExecutionException: java.lang.RuntimeException: No server to serve request. Check logs for details. Not what sure is causing these errors

I am tired of this now, its been 2 days and no fix.

This is not a very common error message, actually never seen it before.
Googling for it indicates that it has to do with Android Studio 3, most of the questions are from the last few days.

Best way to continue debugging: Install 6.4.0 and run ionic info, post that and the complete error output of running the main command.

Okay, i will do that tomorrow morning and let u know.
Its 4am here.

I had the same issue and fixed it from the PATH of Environment Variables.
I added cmder from the PATH and then the error occurred.
After removing the cmder from PATH, it worked again.
Also, executing comand from cmder occasionally occurs the error. Went back to basic and used cmd.
