Android Studio is not generating zip aligned apk
I am using Android Studio 1.2.2
My sdk is well updated and build-tools version installed is 22.0.1
Build > Generate Signed Apk
I only get app-release-unaligned.apk in (app/build/outputs/apk/)
I have already googled and tried:
Copy Pasting “zipalign.exe” from build-tools folder to : (i) sdk/tools/ (ii) sdk/platform-tools/

Gradle zipAlign task not working?
Please help solve this issue, I want to zipalign using Android Studio.
This is my first app i am trying to publish !!!
