    So today when I went on to the build settings tab to change my game from android to windows all that showed was a black screen and a few options. Can someone please explain how to get to the normal screen please. Thanks

    I think that needs bug reporting.

    Hey guys .. it's because of a bug and should be fix in future by developer team but now you can change your project platform in unity hub on the target platform drop down and see all settings of build setting

    You should be recommended at settings in Edit/Preferences/External Tools Android settings.

    I had the same problem. Even switching to Android in Unity Hub didn't help. After playing around a lot I noticed that there is a warning in the preferences window (sry no screenshot), telling me that my version of NDK was old. In addition I had 3 different versions of Unity installed (2019.1.6, 2019.3.6 and 2019.3.8). I removed 2019.1.6 and 2019.3.6 and...... it didn't work. So I opened "Add modules" in Unity Hub, clicked around angrily... everything was already checked, BUT I noticed the "Done" button was active. After clicking it, Unity downloaded and installed everything and now it's working :confused:

    Short summary (that worked for me):
    - Change Target for your project to Android in Unity Hub
    - Open project and let Unity update all Assets
    - Close all active Unity windows
    - Open Unity Hub
    - Remove all older Unity versions
    - Open "Add modules" for your remaining Unity version
    - (Optional) click very often on the already set ticks for the Android packages ;)
    - Click "Done"
    - Wait for download and install to finish
    - Open your project and check if the build window is working now

    My wild guess is, that Unity didn't update the Android stuff due to older installations :eek: Hopefully this is somehow helpful.

    Best regards :)

    Thanks a lot!

    For me it already worked if I just set it to Android in the Unity hub and then close all open Unity projects and like you said, select 'Add modules' and click on done.
    After it's done check 'Add modules' again and see if the install required 0mb.
    This means everything is installed and it should work!
    This way you don't have to remove all older versions because that could mess up older projects.

    I had the same issue however the answers given above did not help. I read the error message given in the system window and realized that the directory that was given said

    "DirectoryNotFoundException: Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Program Files\Common Files\2019.3.6f1\Editor\Data\PlaybackEngines\AndroidPlayer\SDK\build-tools'."

    I opened file manager to this file and realized it was named "build" not "build-tools".
    After I renamed the file all was good.

    The folder must be named "build-tools"! In the case of @brandonalbers1 the folder was initially named "build".

    I too struggled with this problem a lot and couldn't fix it with the answers here.
    Eventually what worked for me was to delete unneeded resolver files, I had several of them with different versions so I delete the lower versions files, reimported assets and it fixed it.
