When I try to run a new blank Android app I get an error:
"The Android SDK Directory could not be found...".
I searched in google for a solution and I found out that I need to go to
Tools -> Android -> Android SDK Manager, and then I realized the buttons are disabled.
I did some checks:
Tools -> Options -> Android Setting for Android SDK Location and it's empty. Furthermore, the folder
Programs Files(x86)\Android\android-sdk contain only 1 folder named
I did a VS repair, twice, and nothing changed.
As I understand the problem, I don't have SDK and somehow VS can't install it properly.
Is there any manual way to install it or any other solution?
Edit: I've tried to uninstall Visual Studio and install again. It couldn't install everything successfully, here is the log:
Package 'JavaJDKV2,version=1.8.6,chip=x64' failed to install.

I fixed it and here is what worked for me:
sdkmanager --list, see sdkmanager page for more information
download the latest version of "sdk-tools-windows-4333796.zip" in https://developer.android.com/studio this web site and update your visual studio to latest version
this will surely work because even in my case it was same error for 3days then i did these changes and now it works fine
