    I have been trying to install the android sdk to take screenshots on my Milestone. I am using this How to take screenshots of your Android based phone from Windows – Simple Help tutorial. I have installed the sdk, jdk, and the drivers for my milestone but when i run ddms it opens cmd prompt and then closes. If someone would come on team viewer and help me finish the installation i would appreciate it

    What version of Windows are you on? 64-bit or 32-bit? In addition, have you tried running as administrator?

    i think i may know your problem. For some reason on Windows 7 64 bit, the android sdk wont work with the 64 bit jdk. Go ahead and install the 32 bit jdk and it should work fine.

    Of course do this if ur running windows 7 64 bit. Are u?

    go into C:\Program Files

    If you see a Java directory then you have the 64 bit one and should download and install the 32 bit one.

    If however you dont see Java there then go into

    C:\Program Files (x86)

    If you see Java there then you have the right one.

    Hmm actually i thought of another possible problem. Ok check first to see which one you have installed and if that doesnt resolve the issue then i may know what the problem is.

    brendan, if you're not even sure of which Windows system you're running, I'd be careful about what do you in too many of those SDK tools. I'd proceed with caution.
