Android Debug Bridge or ADB allows you to communicate with your devices via a command-line interface. It can be used for various purposes as it facilitates a bunch of actions including installing and debugging apps on your device. While trying to run your app via the Android Studio, you might face the “Unable to Locate ADB” error message that stops the simulation. As it turns out, the error message appears when Android Studio is not able to locate the ADB.exe file that is located in the platform-tools folder.
To solve this issue, please check in Android Studio settings the status of selected tools – if needed, install or reinstall it.
