How to install last version of ADT plug-in for eclipse

I am interested in android .I use Eclipse with ADT plug-in and I have downloaded project from github site and try to understand this .

But xml file don't open the error message :

"This version of the rendering library is more recent than your version of ADT plug-in. Please update ADT plug-in".

It seem that my ADT version is old for this recent project although I have installed v23.0.2.1 .

I need help to reach the last version for ADT or another solution for my problem.



Do you use Eclipse ADT Bundle, I mean - before Android Studio 1.0 was released there was ADT Bundle - Eclipse with additional Android tools.

Well I see, it's still available to download:

If you use it, please delete it and download clean Eclipse from this site:

If you're planning to develop also in the other languages than Android accomodated Java, please free to download for example: Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers

I had used Eclipse for EclipseEclipse IDE for Eclipse Committers 4.5.1` and 'Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers', so I'm sure these are higly compatible with newet ADT Plugin.

After you install Eclipse, you need to download and unpack Stand-alone SDK Tools, where you would find [here]

Note: Already the latest version of Android SDK is android-sdk_r24.4.1.

After downloading and unpack Eclipse and Android SDK read this documentation: or just follow these steps:

To add the ADT plugin to Eclipse:

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

Note: The Android Developer Tools update site requires a secure connection. Make sure the update site URL you enter starts with HTTPS.

  1. Click OK.
  2. In the Available Software dialog, select the checkbox next to Developer Tools and click Next.
  3. In the next window, you'll see a list of the tools to be downloaded.
  4. Click Next.
  5. 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.

Configure the ADT Plugin

Once Eclipse restarts, you must specify the location of your Android SDK directory:

  1. In the "Welcome to Android Development" window that appears, select Use existing SDKs.
  2. Browse and select the location of the Android SDK directory you recently downloaded and unpacked.
  3. Click Next.
  4. Your Eclipse IDE is now set up to develop Android apps, but you need to add the latest SDK platform tools and an Android platform to your environment.
  5. To get these packages for your SDK, continue to Adding Platforms and Packages.
