Hi,

I am new to this forum, a big Hello to all.
Now my problem, i downloaded the android sdk r16 from the website http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html.
After the installation when I try to point to the android sdk from eclipse, an error message popped up saying that the adb.exe file not found.
I checked the downloaded folder and there was no platform-tools folder nor adb.exe file inside it.
I tried starting the SDK Manager but no effect. I also tried in eclipse>help>check for updates but it said no new updates found.
IS THERE A WAY AROUND THIS. wHERE CAN i GET PLATFORM-TOOLS FOLDER WITH ADB.EXE FILE. cAN THIS BE MANUALLY CREATED, I MEAN THE FOLDER AND THEN DOWNLOAD THE ADB.EXE FILE FROM SOMEWHERE. I have a deadline and in desperate need of help.

Thanks in advance

Did you see the android-sdk-windows/tools/adb_has_moved.txt file which contains this text:

adb_has_moved.txt wrote: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"



The SDK you download is not the full SDK. You have to first run the "SDK Manager.exe".

I tried running the "SDK Manager.exe", when it runs it doesnt show any packages to be installed. Dont know why that is.

Do you have an internet connection? Do you have to use a proxy to connect? Are you in a corporate environment where there might be a firewall issue?

Here is what I see when I run SDK Manager and wait a few minutes for it to initialize:

Thanks for all your suggestions. The issue got resolved when I added proxy settings to SDK Manager.

Thanks,
