because apparently that is the "correct" way to do it

Then when I try to install the ADT package I get this error




So I guess that means that I have to delete the current hierachyviewer package by hand

I have discovered that if I go help -> About ADT I can delete Android Developer Tools from the eclipse environment

Ok I tried that now let's see what happens

ADT is persistent and won't be deleted

Now just thinking that If I had installed eclipse in one folder and Android development tools in another i could maybe
Just delete and replace the Android development tools folder in order to upgrade
I wonder if this would work or whether it would break something?

Ok im out of ideas can anybody help?

I had the same problem on Linux. I couldn't find a means of fixing the issue through the normal conflict resolution mechanisms in Eclipse, so I tried to uninstall the Android plugin (the plan being to re-install version 23). But instead uninstalling the Android plugin ended up uninstalled the entire Eclipse platform. Lovely, no warning, just full uninstall. The first I knew of it doing the complete uninstall was when it tried to auto restart and said it couldn't find the application. Manual searching also found that the entire Eclipse bundle had been removed. So I don't suggest trying to remove the Android plugin.

I had to download and re-install. And lost all my configuration of course. Nothing I love more than re-configuring the formatting the way I like.

I think that the uninstall re install may be the way I tackle this problem
If I could find a way to keep the Android part separate from the Eclipse part so that I can just delete it (and say a prayer) when this problem happens again (and I know it WILL happen again) that could be good
Otherwise I could try Android Studio but it is a beta and could cause more (and different) problems
PS I was using Windows 7

I am facing same issue right now.
All i can do is re install ADT all over again.

If you decide to go update, i highly suggest you keep your old files somewhere else as back up folder.

If there was a way to keep the Eclipse IDE and the Android SDK separate
It would be easy to uninstall then reinstall the Android SDK, but it's not that easy
It seems that even if the IDE and SDK are installed separately they become inseperable
such that you can't remove one without breaking the other.

I have just installed Android Studio (and updated java for good measure)
I am hoping for better results from the studio

Keep us updated on how Android Studio works out. I tried it a while back, and it was pretty hard to add dependencies on other projects or external JARs and make them stick. In fact, I think you had to manually modify config files, and there were a number of normal config things I am used to being able to do in a GUI which I ended up having to manually modify gradle files for... I don't know gradle and I don't care to learn it just so I can use my IDE so it was a downer. And every update seemed to break something so I had to remake all the project config files or do complete re-installs. The layout generation was really nice. But in the end I figured I would wait until release to use it. But that was a long time ago, so it probably improved since then.

I have one last theory
I think the problem occurs when using the Android SDK Manager
I believe that if you want to upgrade a component of the SDK you must UNinstall
the previous version of that component bevore you install the upgraded version

For example in the SDK manager I just uninstalled SDK Platform tools before
I install the latest version of SDK Platform tools

Also I have another hunch that updating the SDK as often as possible helps

Also I think that when your updating the SDK you should knock on wood and throw some salt over your shoulder
(ok maybe that is just a little ridiculous)

PS as for Android Studio I might just wait till it matures some more

This is where I am up to.
I installed the Android Development tools separately using one of those
uninstaller programs in particular Revo(R) Uninstaller Pro
This means that WHEN (I am confident this will happen again) the Android Development Tool goes crazy
I will just uninstall it using the uninstaller program and it will uninstall cleanly
Leaving a stand alone version of Eclipse functioning perfectly but just not doing any Android things.

I just hope that it will work just as well as I say it will

I could even go as far as crating incremental (local) backups of the system
but If I were to do that I would also need to remember to back up those .android and .eclipse files that are
in every users filesystem (I think)

I also I also realise that the .Eclipse folder that is located in the username folder
contains the registration of all the plugins.
If it was edited or deleted maybe it would make the Android Development Tools go away
at least untill you replace it with a working verstion of ADT

Just stressing what I said in my previous post it is VITALLY important
that ALL of theose .Android .Eclipse scattered throughout your work spaces must be completely removed
I deleted every trace of eclipse and Android before I re installed and I used this information to help me do it

Remove Eclipse completely
Completely Remove Eclipse from a Windows 7 PC

I have found that if you don't install with everything cleaned out it causes lots of errors
