Hi,

I updated the Eclipse plugin today. ALl went fine. However I cannot update the Android SDK at all. The error message is:

Skipping ‘Android SDK Tools, revision 9’; it depends on ‘Android SDK Platform-tools, revision 2’ which was not installed. Downloading Android SDK Platform-tools, revision 2 Installing Android SDK Platform-tools, revision 2 Unzip failed: C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk-windows\temp\PlatformToolPackage.new01\aapt.exe (Åtkomst nekad) Downloading Documentation for Android ‘Honeycomb’ Preview SDK, revision 1 Installing Documentation for Android ‘Honeycomb’ Preview SDK, revision 1 Unzip failed: C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk-windows\temp\DocPackage.new01\reference\lists.js (Åtkomst nekad) Skipping ‘SDK Platform Android Honeycomb Preview, revision 1’; it depends on ‘Android SDK Tools, revision 9’ which was not installed.

Failed to rename directory C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk-windows\platforms\android-9 to C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk-windows\temp\PlatformPackage.old01.

I have closed the adb.exe process and Eclipse and Windows Explorer. I have only OpenOffice Writer going. The folder C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk-windows\temp\ is empty. I have tried to remove it and create it again, both as the User myself, and as Administrator, and nothing helps.

Hi,

I solved it following these advices:

Yes, this is a pain and it has happened to me many times on Windows. Thanks for posting the link. In case the link goes down, here’s what it says to do:

• Close Eclipse and close all instances of windows explorer in which the @\android-sdk-windows\tools@ folder was opened
• Now run the AVD Manager independently as follows:
• Open a command prompt
• Go to the directory where android SDK is installed at, and then its tools subdirectory
• Run android.bat
• At this point, update just as you would if you were running the AVD Manager from within Eclipse (make sure the proxy settings are mentioned if you are behind the proxy).

I forgot to say that i run the command prompt as administrator. At Windows Vista this means to write cmd in Run, and press Ctrl+Shift+Enter. Then a command window opens where you are administrator. I’m not sure if this is necessary in all cases…

FWIW, I didn’t have to run as administrator on Windows 7.

I found out why I don’t have to run as Administrator but you do:
