August Goal: Create first mobile iOS app & Advance Developer Certification

Welcome August, time really flies so fast. I’m setting a couple of goals to complete before August ends to get things crossed out from my 2011 Todo List.

This is a simple tutorial for users with Vista/Windows 7 64-bit.

So you got Eclipse(Helios, Indigo) 64 bit running on your 64-bit machine and definitely you have Java SE Development and Jave Runtime Environment in check. But when you run the Andriod SDK installer you get this error.

Go to > Downloads > Java SE > JD to download and install a JDK before continuing.

Note: A Java Runtime (JRE) is not enought to develop for Android.

Well its a bug in the installer, for a simple solution simply hit the Back button and click on Next. Your JDK should be detected.
