To install the Android Developer Tools (Windows 7)

[Dedicated to my friend,a CS Student at Kwara State University,Nigeria]

Oga,I presuppose that the folder that I copied to you has the following folders:

  • Eclipse
  • Ndk
  • Sdk
  • Sdk-Manager

v  Open the eclipse folder and run the eclipse setup normally.

v  If you are prompted to create a workspace, create a folder where you will store your projects in the drive of your machine.

v  Then when eclipse starts,you go to toolbar and navigate:Window->Prefferences->Android.


v  There will be a text box where you paste the computer path on where your SDK is located.

v  Then click apply and then ok.

Creating an AVD (Android Virtual Device)

v  Click on the icon shown below.


v  A window pops up, give it the details as required, specify the android API you want.

v  Click ok to save the virtual device.

Creating a new project.

v  Click on file->New project->Android Development project.

v  There you go!…a geek can try it.

If there are any challenges, just let me know…Am always ON-THE-LINE.

What!!!! Cheers fellow GSA!
