Screen Capture DDMS ADB Problem

Postby guest » Tue Sep 04, 2012 3:34 pm

Ok guys I need some help trying to take screen captures of my phone. Everytime I run the ddms.bat file I get an error message: "Failed to get the adb version: Cannot run program "adb": CreateProcess error=2, The system cannot find the file specified."

I've gone through all of the instructions and have searched the forums without any answers. Can anyone help?

The first (and only) thing I can think of is to make sure that you have all of the files (like the ADB) in the correct place:

Make sure you're not missing anything.

Special thanks to paulmz!! the adb, adb2inapi, and adbwinusbapi files were not in the tools folder. I have no idea why they don't default there when you install the package.

Okay, I just figured out where the files were. For the benefit of others who are trying to do this on an HTC Incredible (Not rooted), the best instructions I found were here:

The Android Blog - Take Screenshots On HTC Droid Incredible Without Rooting

The only thing that wasn't detailed was where those missing adb files were. I found them in my android-sdk-r08-windows>android-sdk-windows>platform-tools.

I grabbed the adb, AdbWinApi.dll, and AdbWinUsbApi.dll files and moved them from the platform tools folder into the tools folder. It all works now! Yay!
