android – Java SDK Manager Crashes with "flashplayerplugin" in the command line output

Posted by: admin June 15, 2020 Leave a comment


I read few topics about sdk manger and java issues but my problem doesn’t correspond to any.
When i’m launching SDK manager.exe I get as output :


As I was thinking that it was a Java issue I’ve launched sdk\tools\libs\find_java.exe (the .bat returns a blank line)

I get as output :

flashplayerpluginC:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_17\bin\java.exe

I really don’t understand why this flashplayerplugin is coming in the output and crashing the program.

How to&Answers:

I had the same issue. My problem was caused by the tool airfoil. It wrotes a registry entry on:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Rogue Amoeba\Airfoil\WhiteList\WhiteListItem_12

with entry:

name = *flashplayerplugin

Solution: just remove the * before flashplayerplugin and then SDK Manager.exe will start properly.


It’s not an issue with Java, it’s an issue with Flash. See this Super User thread. The poster there was able to solve it, but I could not and had to use System Restore to get back to the point before I updated to the latest Flash player. In my case I think the difference may have been Chrome’s custom Flash player.


Simply un-installing Airfoil worked for me if this is an option for you.


Update Flash Player and Java…might help
