Could not find folder 'tools' inside SDK

I am starting Android Development using Eclipse. I have downloaded all the required software but I am having the same problem as discussed here. Now I do not find the solution of the problem on that discussion so let me rewrite the problem again,

When I load Eclipse and create a new Android project, it keeps on waiting for the ADT to load. To figure out what is wrong I went to preferences and tried to put the location of the ADT I created in it but it keeps giving me this error when I put the address of ADT,

Could not find folder 'tools' inside SDK 'E:\Documents and

I would be very thankful if someone could help me out with this problem.

If you install Eclipse properly then:

  1. Start Eclipse
  2. From the menu bar, select Window > Preferences > Android
  3. For Android location, browse the folder in which you install Android SDKs.
  4. In Android SDKs folder, rename the folder platforms-tools to tools.
  5. Select the folder Android SDKs through Preferences dialog box.
