    When I try to compile I get the message:
    Cannot find: C:\Program Files\Android\tools\..\platform-tools\aapt.exe
    Please configure paths (Tools - Configure Paths).
    Where can I find the missing item?

    Have you installed at least one platform? In some rare cases aapt.exe can be located in a non-standard folder. You can search for it under Android folder.

    unable to run this basic

    I am still unable to run this basic. The message i get is about missing:
    C:\Program Files\Android\tools\..\platform-tools\aapt.exe
    but i have no idea where to put that aapt.exse file as there is no way to
    change the path mentioned here. ( don't even now what is \...\)
    Furthermore it is unclear how to install at least one platform

    If you are installing the Android SDK, you need the files shown HERE

    kissing path

    I still get the complaint that I should define the paths.
    It seems the possibility to state where aapt is located is
    missing.

    To clarify: the message I get is:
    Cannot find: C:\Program Files\Android\tools\..\platform-tools\aapt.exe
    Please configure paths (Tools - Configure Paths).

    so where is the error?

    Try installing the SDK in a path that doesn't have without spaces in the name.

    C:\Program Files\ <-- No

    C:\AndroidSDK\ <-- Yes

    I recommend you to uninstall Android SDK and install the latest version under c:\AndroidSDK.

    The problem you are getting happens because some of the files are not located in the expected path.

    With the latest update of the Android SDK, some files have been moved in another folder. Copy the contents of the folder android-sdk\build-tools\17.0.0 into android-sdk\platform-tools and that should be ok.

    Eggcellent! :)

    excellent. Thank you. compiles without errors (without emulator). I'll get this running with an emulator, shouldn't make a difference.

    Does 64 bit make a difference?

    Would it make a difference if I used the 64 bit JDK? Would that work?

    spaces drive letters and 64 bit?

    Kept my paths short and sweet on a P drive, Informatics told me what to do and it worked. You probably told me too :)

    Will 64 bit JDK work as well?

    Another question, can you send me latest version in email? As previously mentioned I will back everything up. I have my license file well backed up however, so that's not a problem.

    Android SDK might fail to install when there is no 32 bit JDK installed. Once installed it doesn't matter which version of the JDK you are using.
