Setting the Android Development Environment is very simple and explained step by step in android.com web site, But these steps lacks some information.
This site says that if you download the “ADT Bundle for Windows” you will have everything to start the development process. But if you do so then the first error you will get that eclipse will not run if your PC is freshly windows installed or no JVM installed in your PC.
So, you need to download and install “jdk-7u21-windows-x64 .exe“.
After That if you need to run your android application in Samsung Android Phone, Then you are in big trouble, because Samsung kies have no driver version yet for windows8. So, if you install kies, it will not install the driver for the phone and you will not able to browse your phone or can not debug your software in you device.
What you need to do is download latest version of kies and install it.
after installation go to “C:\Program Files (x86)\Samsung\Kies\USB Driver”
Right click on “SAMSUNG_USB_Driver_for_Mobile_Phones.exe” -> “Properties” -> “Compatibility” -> Check “Run this program in compatibility mode for:” -> choose “Windows 7”
Now install the USB driver again.
Now it will work fine. Thank you for reading this article. 🙂
