Installing Frameworks on-demand?


I'm currently redownloading the IDEA installer because when I first installed it, I deselected Android, but now I'd like to use it. I hunted high and low for how to get it integrated, but it looks like the only way to do it is during installation, unless I'm mistaken. Shouldn't there be a way to download and install available frameworks on-demand? If there already is, I can't find documentation or the feature anywhere.


Update: No matter how many times I uninstall and reinstall, clear caches and settings, it's never bringing up the initial screen where I could choose frameworks and plugins again. The installer is just broken. I'll probably have to move on from IntelliJ for Android development.


Plugins can be enabled in settings, see .

To run the first startup wizard again you need to remove IDE config/system/plugins folders:


OK, that's actually a big help. Thank you. The problem wasn't that it wasn't there, it was, it turns out that it had also kept my settings for an old version of Android SDK that I upgraded from long ago. I found out how to create a new Android SDK entry in project settings and now it finally runs and no longer throws up a bunch of errors on the AndroidManifest.xml. I don't know how to remove the old entry or why it didn't pick up the new, but as long as it works, I'm happy.


Old SDKs can be removed in the Project Structure dialog:
