Subject Re: Getting Started with Android on Windows

FYI. I have been just been through the same steps on OS X. (replaced my 4.1 SDK with the 4.2
one, downloaded Cordova 2.2.0 package)

Looks like the cordova jar isn't building with the Android 4.2 SDK (and I guess on Windows
it's not reporting the error when it can't copy it)

Moog2:incubator-cordova-android ahayes$ cd bin
Moog2:bin ahayes$ ./create ../../../Test com.example.test Test
cp: /Users/ahayes/Documents/cordova-2.2.0/incubator-cordova-android/framework/cordova-2.2.0.jar:
No such file or directory
An error occurred. Deleting project...
