Rendering Problems Failed to load platform rendering library

+2 steve Jones · May 21, 2015
Hello, I Just started learning about Android development, Loaded Android Studio all is well however the preview window is not displaying anything. Everything else is working, compiling, and running in the simulator.

I have tried all (I think) the fixes I've found online but with no effect on the problem. I have tried to change the Android version setting...set the environment variables for JAVA_HOME and JDK_HOME to my "..\java\jdk1.8.0_45" directory... I have all every SDK file installed from API 18-22, all the tools and extras...project structure settings for SDK and JDK paths are correct...

Does anyone have the correct fix for this? Thanks in advance.

The message in the preview window is:

"Rendering Problems
Failed to load platform rendering library"

Thanks for your input.
I have built and ran projects...still no preview is displayed.
I have uninstalled AS (latest version) and install the previous version and the preview window works fine. Install the newer version preview????
