Android Development can't complete course
During the initial android video - it is asking me to use Android Virtual Device Manager. I try to create an Android41 /AVD but when selecting Create AVD I get an error message
[2013-01-02 23:19:43 - SDK Manager] Error: Target location is not inside the SDK. [2013-01-02 23:19:43 - SDK Manager] Failed to set image path properties in the AVD folder.
Found some assistance on this link - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4810478/android-sdk-and-avd-manager-cant-create-avd-in-correct-file-location
After creating the event variables it still isnt working.
Running Windows 8 64bit I have run the Initial_Setup file as admin and I have not changed the location of the Android folder
Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
I was actually able to resolve it. Maybe this can help someone else. Saving it in the root of the profile location doesnt work not sure if its UAC or what but I moved the folder to documents instead of c:\Users\%username%\ and reran the initial setup file and it worked.
Fantastic Antonio! So glad you were able to figure things out :D

Awesome - thanks for posting your solution, Antonio! This is the #1 problem members have been facing with the Windows bundle, and it's always related to the path where it's unzipped. I'll go take a look and see where I can add some tips to help avoid this in the future.

Side Note: One of the things I've noticed is that there are sometimes Window-specific steps missing in videos regarding instructions on installing software such as Android's SDK and Ruby on Rails.
I'm always super grateful when someone posts a note about Windows-specific instructions.
I'm on a Mac and I'm having the same issue. How do I resolve? I'm a total novice when it comes to troubleshooting computer problems....
I'm working in Windows 7. During the initial Android video I try to create Android41 but I keep getting error message [2013-06-08 16:06:20 - SDK Manager] Error: Target location is not inside the SDK. [2013-06-08 16:06:20 - SDK Manager] Failed to set image path properties in the AVD folder.
What do I do?
