More Troubleshooting Help Topics

If you are having trouble with the emulator or USB, the first thing to do is to visit the Connection Test Page to verify that aiStarter is running and that you have installed the latest version of the setup software. Even if the test passes, it is still a good idea to begin your troubleshooting by reinstalling the setup software, making sure to follow all the instructions, including the steps of rebooting and uninstalling. See How to update the App Inventor setup software. Also, in addition to the troubleshooting suggestions shown here, you can find help with problems connecting to the emulator, phone or tablet, and help with aiStarter on the page for General connection help. You can also visit the App Inventor Forum to connect with other App Inventor users.
