Description Alex M 2016-10-06 12:59:01 UTC
I have an Android tablet that will report its serial number/qualifier (using "adb devices") with a space (in  my case "ZTB X").

This causes the deploy to device to fail when getting the device API version using this command: 
1>C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools\adb.exe -s ZTB X  shell getprop ro.build.version.sdk 
1>"adb.exe" exited with code 1.
1>A numeric comparison was attempted on "$(_DeviceSdkVersion)" that evaluates to "" instead of a number, in condition "$(_DeviceSdkVersion) >= 21".
1>Build FAILED.

The failure is due to the '-s ZTB X' part. Since there is a space, the proper command should be adb.exe -s "ZTB X"  shell getprop ro.build.version.sdk

Just to add to my description, here is the output of the ADB command:

C:\Users\<user>>adb devices
List of devices attached
ZTB X   device

Thank you for the report. Unfortunately, at this time, we're unable to reproduce this issue. I don't currently have access to any devices with a space in the qualifier. Alex - could you let us know what device you were using? I haven't been able to locate a device based on "ZTB X". I'll try to source something to test moving forward.

Setting to NEEDINFO for the time being.
