Initially, installing Android Development environment was a headache which was installing all the component one by one. From JDK to android platforms. Now with ADT Bundle it is much simpler to install and run ADT in windows. First download the ADK bundle software 32/64 bit based upon windows OS bit version.

After downloading ADT bundle, use the following steps

  1. Unpack the ZIP file (named adt-bundle-<os_platform>.zip) and save it to an appropriate location, such as a “Android Software” directory in your home directory.
  2. Open the adt-bundle-<os_platform>/eclipse/ directory and launch eclipse.

That’s all! The IDE is already loaded with the Android Developer Tools plugin and the SDK is ready to go

This will install the following components

  1. Eclipse + ADT plugin
  2. Android SDK Tools
  3. Android Platform-tools
  4. The latest Android platform
  5. The latest Android system image for the emulator
