I am an Android beginner trying to get the environment setup. After downloading the SDK(android-sdk_r04-windows.zip), I run the SDK manager to download platforms, I only see the following list in the available packages

Google APIs by Google Inc., Android API 6, revision 1
Google APIs by Google Inc., Android API 5, revision 1
Google APIs by Google Inc., Android API 4, revision 2
Google APIs by Google Inc., Android API 3, revision 3
Usb Driver Package, revision 2

I added this site to get the above list, http://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/repository.xml. Default https site did not work. My platforms and addons directory is empty. I read the instructions multiple times and I googled quite a bit and did not find the answer. What am I missing. I was expecting to see platforms listed in the above list. I am behind a firewall. I appreciate your response.

It turns out that once I checked the option "Force http sources to be fetched using http://" on the settings page of the Android SDK and AVD manager, it retrieved all the items which also included the platforms by using the https link. Hopefully this helps someone else.

Yup. The https fetch option is a known problem, although nothing in the application warns you about it. I think I had to do the same thing myself.

I was working through the same problem as you yesterday, Promod. Actually, I was first wondering why none of the targets already existed because all the tutorials online seemed to suggest that they should have already been there. Wish I would have caught your post yesterday!
