How do I get around Cordova 'build error' in Intel XDK

  • Hi all, I have been trying all day to solve this issue and its driving me loopy. I get as far the 'Build' section in Intel XDK but when I click on any of the options (Crosswalk for Android, iOS etc) I get an error which says:

    ************************

    BUILD ERROR

    Unable to build. Please verify that you are connected to the internet and try again. (I DEFINITELY AM CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET

    plugin cordova-plugin-device does not exist.

    *************************

    Does anyone have an idea how to fix this error? Thanks in advance.

    I know its an OLD post. For for people who prefer CLI5.1.1 (like me), in XDK,

      Just goto the Plugin Management Screen.
      Remove the "cordova-plugin-device" by clicking the minus button

      -

      and re-add the same by clicking the + button.
      Goto Core Plugin and select "Device". Add "Splash" as well because it gets removed too.

    Then click on BUILD again. It should work now
