Whenever I type in the location of my SDK, I see no target SDKs to apply. If anyone could help me get past this, that would be great! Thanks.

    Hey Corbin,

    I believe the problem isn't in step 7 - it's in step 3. You have to download the appropriate SDK kits for each version of Android. For example, if you want to develop for 2.1, you must download the SDK for 2.1.

    The way to do this is by running the SDK Manager (from the Windows start menu) and then checking the appropriate boxes on the development kits.

    My best guess is you haven't installed sdks to select any. or the target directory might have no SDKs to select. try reinstalling the sdks or find that the path is fine..

    Have you made sure to use the SDK manager to download an SDK Platform?
    If so, make sure you are selecting the root folder for your SDK installation. Have you tried manually finding your SDK folder in windows?
