Please ensure that adb is correctly located…

Hello folks,

some days ago i got a new Smartphone. Its an Samsung Galaxy S2 with Android 2.3.3. So i wanted to program my first own Android Application.

I followed a German Guide about Android-Programming.

But when had i finished my HelloWorld App and wanted to Compile it, the first unexcepted error appears.

The Error was the following:

[2011-09-10 20:19:36 - HelloWorld] The connection to adb is down, and a severe error has occured.
[2011-09-10 20:19:36 - HelloWorld] You must restart adb and Eclipse.
[2011-09-10 20:19:36 - HelloWorld] Please ensure that adb is correctly located at 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools\adb.exe' and can be executed.

Soon i found out that the Path of SDK Location(Preferences -> Android -> SDK Location) was the cause. My SDK Path was the following:

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

So what is wrong? The Spaces in the Path are the problems. To get it work, you must change “Program Files (x86)” to “Progra~2″

The complete right path is “C:\Progra~2\Android\android-sdk”.

Now it should work and you can compile your first Android Application :)
