    1. You need it all.
      And be careful that the installation process is not the same like regular programs that installed on Program Files folder.

      Follow this process :
      1.Create new folder to hold all of the other Android SDK packages for instance "AndroidSDK"
      2.extract the tools_xxx.zip inside the AndroidSDK Folder
      3.Run "android.bat" and wait . Now it will SDK manager for you.
      Simply as that.

      I will update the tuts since I don't aware that the zipped version only contains tools folder and not the .exe file
      Thank you

    1. Hi, create a folder for instance "AndroidSDK".
      Then extract tool.zip INSIDE the AndroidSDK folder.

      now you have "tool" folder inside AndroidSDK folder, and from there you can run android.bat to start the GUI installation just like I mentioned in this page.

    3. Hi Ravi, the installation detail has been provided at
      https://androidsdkoffline.blogspot.co.id/2016/06/how-to-install-android-sdk-offline.html

      if you have installed the SDK Tools , then you need to install SDK Compilers and System Images (optional). You can install whatever SDK package versions that match your learning/development needs
      You might want to install Extras too

      All the links are already provided in this blog
      Thank you

  10. Hello, good job you doing there. Will it be possible to use the same in Eclipse Neon 3? Then the other thing, when do you plan to add 26.0.1.

    1. Hi there, you're welcome
      Android SDK is actually can be used using Android Studio and Eclipse
      However since Google made shifts to use Gradle as primary build tool, and they stop ADT Plugins for Eclipse,then Android Studio is preferred

      Currently there is NO release of v26.0.1 for SDK Manager, but they already in preview for
      SDK Platform Tools :https://androidsdkoffline.blogspot.co.id/p/android-sdk-platform-tools.html
      and
      SDK Build Tools:https://androidsdkoffline.blogspot.co.id/p/android-sdk-build-tools.html

      I have added build tools and platform tools v26rc1 preview there

      Thank you

    2. And if you still want to use Eclipse, they now have official Eclipse distribution that designed specifically for ANdroid Development
      If you have Eclipse already you might want to install plugins called "andmore"
      You can also download Eclipse for ANdroid
      http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/eclipse-android-developers-includes-incubating-components/neon3
      it is still incubating but worth trying

  11. Thank you so much. I am actually using the Eclipse Android Neon 3 IDE you suggested. I installed the offline tools from your blog here Android SDK Tools, Platform-Tools, Build-Tools and I can see them in Android SDK Manager. I am however stuck with this error 'Location of the Android SDK has not been setup in the preferences' but once I solve it I think I will have succeeded in setting up everything.

    Would you have pointers on how to handle it? I have tried most of the options on internet but I have not gotten than one silver bullet that takes care of it. I understand it can be caused by many other things.

    Your blog is very helpful and I must thank you for your support and making these trivial things simple.

  12. Thank you but that is one of those which I tried before but did not work for me. A quick question,after using SDK Manager to install the Android tools where are they installed? I am running on Windows 7 32 bit.

    I have installed the following;

    From Eclipse website;
    1. Eclipse IDE Neon 3 for Android ( The one you suggested up there)

    From this blog;
    1. Android SDK Tools 25.2.5
    2. Android SDK Platform-tools 25.0.5
    3. Android SDK Build-tools 25.0.2

    Then installed this ADT 24.2.0 which supports Nougat from this repository here maintained by Khaleed https://github.com/khaledev/ADT/releases I am also grateful to him for persisting to keep Android dev continues on Eclipse. The 24.2.0 ADT installed well in Eclipse IDE Neon 3 for Android.

    I am on JDK 1.8.0.45

    The problem I have is locating the path of the installed Android SDK tools, Build-tools and Platform-tools. I have tried placing them in various locations but I am still getting 'No target available' in the Preferences window (i.e. after Window->Preferences->Android).

    I do not know whether you have had anyone come across this problem before. I believe it is just something small that I am not doing right. If you have any further ideas or suggestions you could pelt me with them so that I try them out as well. Otherwise a big thank you for the good support you do here and the great work you are doing.

  13. Whoa, I don't know if someone keep developing ADT . thanks for mentioning that.

    Honestly, I don't use that ADT, I only use Andmore eclipse plugin to support Android

    Did you installed Android SDK Packages already?

    Personally I also experienced the same thing when using Neon, so I updated to Oxygen beta and even when the target are listed , the project creation missing .properties file.
    So I think it is buggy

    I will try to update Andmore and try to use ADT you mentioned

    1. Hello Mark
      SDK 25.3.1 and 26.x have breaking changes and is likely getting serious attention from Community
      this is because several tools including "android" tool is deprecated , also the Hierarchy viewer were removed and returned again

      CMD installation will also be different since in 26.x it will uses sdkmanager along with new install syntax

      We'll update that shortly after investigating more on this
      Thank you
