Summary0029323: Build Android YYC: Android YYC builds launch with error 'Unable to find library for armv7l' when using NDK 17b
DescriptionIf you target Android YYC using NDK 17b and have an older device connected, the Runner can show the following error on start: "Unable to find library for this devices architecture, which is armv7l, ensure you have included the correct architecture in your APK."

In Game Options, no architectures exist for armv7l, so I'm currently unable to build YYC for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S. I use the Tab S frequently, and it's been working so far up to the latest Red builds.

Running in VM works fine, this only affects YYC builds.
Steps To Reproduce1. Target Android YYC on an Android device.

Build Tools: 27.0.0
Support Library: 27.0.0
Target SDK: 27
Minimum SDK: 14
Compile SDK: 27
NDK: 17.0.4754217

2. Enable only Arm7, Arm64 and x86_64 architectures for Android
3. Build to the device.
4. Observe the above error when the runner launches.
TagsNo tags attached.

I'll see if I can take a deeper look at this soon and get more accurate repro-steps.

Replicated > / rt - Updating repro-steps - I've managed to get this again on both the Tab S and an Amazon Fire device (while building Android), with the Armv7, Arm64 and x86_64 architectures selected. Again, this only happens in YYC, VM is not affected - Reopening.

I could not get this to happen, I suspect it has something to do with which SDK, NDK or even which project you are using, we need more info to replicate

If you're using NDK 17, you'll encounter this issue on older devices (non-64bit architectures). Use NDK 16 instead for now as a workaround.

We do have some reports that using 16b can still reproduce this error. It appears that if you have 17b+ installed, but not in use in game options (you're using 16), this can still cause errors.

This issue is seemingly specific to devices which use Android API 23 (Android 6.0 - Marshmallow). That version of the OS did not ship with the support libraries installed on the device and the latest NDKs have stopped including support for them also.
