Can't accept license agreement Android SDK Platform 24


I'm getting the following error when trying to install an android platform on a Cordova project. I've been following this guide:

Error occurs when executing the following: $ cordova platform add android --save

A problem occurred configuring root project 'android'. You have not accepted the license agreements of the following SDK components: [Android SDK Platform 24].

I've searched all over for ways to accept the license agreement of Android SDK Platform 24, but no real luck.

Thank you ahead of time.

The Best Answer is


You can also just execute

$ANDROID_HOME/tools/bin/sdkmanager --licenses

Or for Windows execute

%ANDROID_HOME%/tools/bin/sdkmanager --licenses

-- OR --

C:\Users{your-username}\AppData\Local\Android\sdk\tools\bin\sdkmanager --licenses

I'm not exactly sure how cordova works, but once the licenses are accepted it creates a file. You could create that file manually. It is described on this question, but here's the commands to create the required license file.


mkdir "$ANDROID_HOME/licenses"
echo -e "\n8933bad161af4178b1185d1a37fbf41ea5269c55" > "$ANDROID_HOME/licenses/android-sdk-license"


mkdir "%ANDROID_HOME%\licenses"
echo |set /p="8933bad161af4178b1185d1a37fbf41ea5269c55" > "%ANDROID_HOME%\licenses\android-sdk-license"
