i tried all different approaches
latest approach was using the android sdk/adt bundle that comes with a version of eclipse. you think the all in one package would work right? everything seems fine until i get to the part where i want to run it on the virtual device. i try to open the virtual device manager and nothing happens.
when i first opened the eclipse, it said it couldnt find the sdk tools folder, so i renamed the folders to what it was looking for (in this case C\adtbundle\adt-bundles-windows\sdk)
im going to uninstall again and start from scratch
if you dont mind, you can hold my hand and go step by step with me?
java is already installed
so youre saying my first step is download and install sdk or eclipse? (following how you did it)
cause the android instruction page (your first link) says download sdk then install adt plugin if im using eclipse (which i am). but should i have installed eclipse first before sdk?
when they say download sdk, do i unpack it and install (and not click run at the end)
i have been through all the different ways to do this. it might not sound like it.
im willing to go very slowly step by step
so, first thing:
download unpack and install eclipse, yes?
download sdk yes?
then unpack yes?
then install yes?
DO NOT CLICK RUN, yes?
then do the adt plug in steps, yes?
thanks for any help
