I am trying to build the SampleBrowser-Forms for Android however when I do so, I get the following error :-

Expecting class path separator ';' before '\Android\android-sdk\build-tools\23.0.1\lib\shrinkedAndroid.jar' in argument number 8

Any ideas why this might be happening and how to resolve it?

Kind regards,

Paul Diston
