What is wrong with Thunkable recently? DX execution failed


Could anyone please tell me what’s wrong with Thunkable recently?

When I try to download my project and I got this:

Thunkable is unable to compile this app.
The compiler error output was

Search the forum. This has been asked many times before. Changes are there is something wrong with your project and not with Thunkable.


I’m pretty sure that’s not my fault because I tested the app on Thunkable live and it runs very smoothly. And thanks to the Thunkable team by adding more power to the server after I sent feedback via online chat.
BTW, I used AI2 to built the aia files into APK and it works and the size is just less than 8MB.


Problems solved !!! I found a better platform.
This is a very competitive world. If you can’t fix it, others sure can.


your error message is DX execution failed
this is a very general error message and therefore it’s hard to say, what might be the issue in your case
however there is SteveJG’s monster list of tips and tricks you can check for possible reasons…
good luck!
let us know, what you find out…



I’m still searching and working on the solutions… I think it is time for Thunkable to upgrade to the latest version like Makeriod. They are running the latest version of platform.


I think it’s time for you to fix your project and follow the general recommendations, same is valid also for other distributions…
