"SDK Platform Tools component is missing!"

I am trying to add the add SDK Platform 1.6 to an existing Install of 2.2, with the help of this thread.

As suggested, I ran HelpCheck for Updates which found and installed the following:

+ Android DDMS 8.0.1.v201012062107-82219
+ Android Development Tools 8.0.1.v201012062107-82219

It prompted for restarting Eclipse and when it restarted it gave me the following error message:

"SDK Platform Tools component is missing!
Please use the SDK Manager to install it."

Huh? Why? I still have the SDK Platform Tools on C:\android-sdk-windows that was working perfectly before I did this "upgrade".

What do I need to have both 2.2 and 1.6 supported in my development environment?


OK, here is what I did to fix the problem:

Open Eclipse. Then:
  Window > Android SDK and AVD Manager
   > Available Packages: 
     > Android Repository:
       + Android SDK Tools, revision 8
       + Android SDK Platform-tools, revision 1
