Android Plugin for Eclipse problem

I am using a laptop with Windows 7 Home Prem x64. I have installed Java JDK1.6.0_18 and Eclipse Gallileo. I have downloaded and installed the latest version of Android SDK with several Platforms loaded and a AVD defined. I can install the Android Eclipse plugin from the remote site stated in the instructions. The plugin installation performs without any errors and I can verify that the plugins are indeed installed. My problem begins when I go to Windows -> Preferences, there is no Android section to configure. And when I go to File -> New -> Project, there is no Android Project to choose.

I have uninstalled the plugin and reinstalled at least 10 times, trying different things and still no luck. I originally had the 64 bit version of the JDK installed, but removed it and installed the 32 bit version.

Has anyone heard of this type of problem? Is it because I am using Windows 7?

Thanks for any help. tbneff

Answer 1

Have you tried doing the following and have it manually install from there:

Help -> Software Updates -> Add site ->

I didn't see it on the website regarding if the ADT or the SDK is not compatible with Windows 7.

When you said you installed the 32-bit version, did you get it working or not at all?

Answer 3

I encountered the same problem on my Mac, and found out what my problem was. When I was futzing around with stuff I had renamed the config.ini file in the eclipse/configuration folder. When I renamed it back to config.ini and restarted eclipse everything Android was back in the menus for me.
