AndScreen Version History

Possible Error Messages:
Error # 1 (a) : File Not Found: adb.exe. Please relocate default folder
(b) : File Not Found: AdbWinApi.dll. Please relocate default folder
(c) : File Not Found: AdbWinUsbApi.dll. Please relocate default folder

Solution: Android SDK must be installed on your PC  in order to use “AndScreen” software because “AndScreen” will use above three missing files which are a part of Android SDK package. Read this tutorial for the easy installation of Android SDK package alongwith USB drivers.

Then Relocate the default folder “Platform-tools” by Manual or Automatic process. Then “Save” this location and restart “AndScreen” software. You will never see above error messages again.

Error # 2: “File Not Found: fb0.raw. Process Stopped !!”

Solution: Disconnect your mobile from PC and reconnect again. Also restart “AndScreen” software. Make sure that your can see your android phone information in the black horizontal screen like this:

System Mode  (for  non-rooted/ rooted phones):


Recovery Mode (for ROOTED phone only):

Also make sure that “USB debugging” mode is enabled in your phone because your phone will never detect in “Mass Storage” mode.
