Flutter setup, android licenses unknown, Windows, VS Code


I’m having a (seemingly common) unknown license status issue. However, common fixes have not worked, such as flutter doctor --android-licenses, which can be seen in the console output below. I have gone to the link also – not helpful.

C:\Users\anonymous\OneDrive\Documents\Frameworks\flutter>flutter doctor
Doctor summary (to see all details, run flutter doctor -v):
[!] Android toolchain - develop for Android devices (Android SDK version 30.0.3)
    X Android license status unknown.
      Run `flutter doctor --android-licenses` to accept the SDK licenses.
      See https://flutter.dev/docs/get-started/install/windows#android-setup for more details.

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance 🙂


Installing the Android SDK Command-line Tools should fix the issue. Navigatie to settings,Appearance & Behavior -> System Settings -> Android SDK

Installing through the settings of Android Studio works for me

Then run:

flutter doctor --android-licenses

Which should give you something like this:

coolcoders@myhost ~ % flutter doctor --android-licenses
5 of 7 SDK package licenses not accepted. 100% Computing updates...             
Review licenses that have not been accepted (y/N)? y
