    I can already see this is going to be fun! I'm trying set up the Android SDK onto my MBP, but I am running into problems. The problem is that when I try to set the Android SDK location in eclipse preferences, nothing happens. I'm trying to follow the directions found here: Installing and Updating ADT | Android Developers

    Code (Text):
    1. Now modify your Eclipse preferences to point to the Android SDK directory:
    3. Select Window > Preferences... to open the Preferences panel (Mac OS X: Eclipse > Preferences).
    4. Select Android from the left panel.
    5. For the SDK Location in the main panel, click Browse... and locate your downloaded SDK directory.
    6. [COLOR="Red"]Click Apply, then OK.[/COLOR]
    7. Done! If you [B]haven't encountered any problems[/B], then you're ready to begin developing Android applications.
    Looking forward to your responses. Thank you much! -Dustin

    I thought I had the same problem but just noticed that it takes time for the sdks to load-- look in the lower right hand corner for a progress indicator and wait!
