Hi Ahmed,

the first issue (Error:A problem occurred configuring project ':plugins') probably happens because you need to have the android ndk installed.

The second issue is from updating the android gradle version to 3.0.0. You can either revert this change and switch back to 2.3 or try to fix this as described here.

Best Regards,

Wow, finally my problem is solved you are the best support forever :)

I followed your link on

and I added some steps as the following : 

1- I removed the plugins folder from the project 

2- remove , ':plugins'  from from setting.gradle 

   - Use include ':wikitude-sdk-samples'

3- as the answer in the link plus :

     -Use outputFileName instead of every output.outputFile

     -Use outputFile.endsWith instead of

     -use outputFile instead of outputFile.parent

, and the screenshot will explain more


Hi all,


A beta version of SDK 8 is now available for developers on the download page offering support for Android Studio 3.x and Gradle 3.
