Android SDK Install or Run Time Errors

developersI downloaded the Android SDK and installed it on my windows 7 64bit system. Everything installed ok, even the Java SDK. so now to build my first app.

I created my first virtual device and clicked start… Error…

Hint: use ‘@foo’ to launch a virtual device named ‘foo’.

and the virtual device failed to start.

After googleing around for the error, there was many reasons, from editing config files to putting the path into system variables settings…

Well the easy solution:

When you install the Android SDK don’t install to:

C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk or C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk

Instead install to:


and it will run perfectly.

It looks like the Android SDK does not support long filenames.
