    Default Downloading Android SDK Platform-tools-failed

    I am trying to install packages in the Android SDK and AVD manager.

    I get the following message:

    Downloading Android SDK Platform-tools, revision 3
    Failed to create directory C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\temp

    Any ideas?

    What version of Windows are you running? It's usually best to keep things out of the Program Files folder when doing development. Certain rights are restricted on that folder depending on what version of Windows is running.

    Make yourself a "c:\Android" folder, or similar. Install Eclipse and the SDK tools there. It makes it a lot easier to keep track of.
