Mismatch between Eclipse and Android SDK
« on: Mar 29, 2013, 11:09 PM »
I have had Eclipse on my PC for some time without having used it. But the guidance here has tempted me to have another go. If there is a better forum to ask about my problem (which has, so far, nothing to do with Mintoris) I welcome a reference.

Eclipse is v3.4.2; Android SDK is v21.1. Latter has a file called "adb_has_moved.txt" with content:

Quote
The adb tool has moved to platform-tools/

If you don't see this directory in your SDK,
launch the SDK and AVD Manager (execute the android tool)
and install "Android SDK Platform-tools"

Please also update your PATH environment variable to
include the platform-tools/ directory, so you can
execute adb from any location.

I've done what it says. But when I try to tell Eclipse where the Java SDK is resident I get messages which suggest that Eclipse insists that adb.exe and other tools are in a tools directory. I already found that I could not just point Eclipse at the sdk folder because it wanted android.jar which is/are in the subordinate platform folders.

It seems a poor system to have Eclipse anticipating too much of the Android SDK structure, so I feel I've got something badly wrong‼

Mike.

The development tools are somewhat lacking. I would probably uninstall and re-install Eclipse.

I suggest removing your current ADK and Eclipse, going to
http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html
and downloading the ADK bundle, which includes both.

OK, thanks chaps, I guess I'll have to "bite the bullet" and do the downloading again, after midnight so it doesn't eat my month's 10Gb allowance all in one go‼

Cheers, Mike.
