[FIXED] Android Studio – This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized


I’ve installed Android Studio to run a React Native application on an android emulator.

I’ve followed the instructions from the react native website under Windows / Android.
Now when I try to run the simulator I’m getting the error below. I’ve searched for the error but no useful results found.

I’ve reinstalled Android Studio but to no success. Any idea on how to fix this?

I was getting same error while launching Android Emulator.
My c drive Users folder was hidden and Ready Only. I unchecked both Read Only and Hidden chekboxes.
Then it started working for me.
