    Is "C:\Android\android-sdk;" in your PATH variable?

    This looks like someone didn't surround text that includes spaces with quotes ("). Without the quotes, something like "C:\Program Files\and\so\on" will be truncated to "C:\Program" by Windows. And that will cause problems. :)

    Did you try to download the ADT bundle? Go here and download that. That gives you everything you should need (including Eclipse and the plugin)

    So the "C:\Program" error message that I saw was something parsing the path to the Java binaries improperly?

    Glad to hear it's fixed. For future reference, or if moving the Java directory breaks other things, remember that in Windows you can use double-quotes (") to surround a path and/or file name containing spaces to get it to parse properly. You need to put the quotes at the very ends of the entire string, BTW. "C:\Program Files\My Program" is good; C:\"Program Files"\"My Program" can cause problems.

    You can also use DOS-compatible notation, renaming "Program Files" to something like "PROGRA~1", which also saves space. Note that in Windows 7 there are at least three directories that start with "PROGRA" (it's the first six characters, a tilde and a number that increments) so you might need to use "PROGRA~2" and so on to get the right directory.
