the - Error Message:This Android SDK requires Android Developer Toolkit version 22.6.1 or above

https dl ssl google com android eclipse (4)

I reported this bug yesterday. Solution is to use Help -> Install new software option with httpS:// protocol (s is important). No special downloads or re-installations is needed, just choose the right update site.

Recently I've encountered following error :

The strangest thing is that I've just updated some package from sdk via working eclipse. There was no information or warning that after this update current adt will crash. I've checked latest updates and can't find new adt even on google's page. Even new adb contain old adt.


Dependencies: Android SDK Platform-tools revision 18 or later. If you are developing in Eclipse with ADT, note that this version of SDK Tools is designed for use with ADT 22.6.1 and later. If you haven't already, update your ADT Plugin to 22.6.1.

The only solution is to download new standalone eclipse and external plugin for it? Does the android studio face the same problems?

Environment: linux x64.

Today me and one of my friends faced the same problem, so I have tried many things like restarting eclipse, checking updates, etc. but none was working for me.

Then I found a solution from Here and it's working as a charm for me and also for my friend.

Follow the steps here:

  • Start Eclipse, then select Help > Install New Software.
  • Click Add, in the top-right corner.
  • In the Add Repository dialog that appears, enter "ADT Plugin" for the Name and the following URL for the Location:

  • Click OK.

If you have trouble acquiring the plugin, try using "http" in the Location URL, instead of "https" (https is preferred for security reasons).

  • In the Available Software dialog, select the checkbox next to Developer Tools and click Next.
  • In the next window, you'll see a list of the tools to be downloaded. Click Next. Read and accept the license agreements, then click Finish.
  • If you get a security warning saying that the authenticity or validity of the software can't be established, click OK.
  • When the installation completes, restart Eclipse.

You can go to Window->Android SDK Manager and check tha what version you have. In my case it shows I already have toolkit 22.6.1 installed but still get the error. Whether you already have it or not, you can do the following to fix.

  • Go to Help->Install New Software... In the dialog shown below, click on 'Add' button on the top right side.
  • Paste "" in Location. You can name it anything.
  • Click Ok and follow the dialog by clicking Next.
  • If prompted with a message sasying you already have it, just agree so that it gets updated (or installed if it wasn't there).

This should resolve the issue. source :
