    Okay, I'm stuck here. I was following all the instructions and then when I had to go to my path and type that in, is where I"m lost. Can you possible help me out? What information do you need so that I can set the correct path in order to make this work for me.

    Thanks

    So make sure your in your computer environmental variables.

    Right click computer->properties->Advanced System Settings->Advanced->Environmental Vairabled (For windows 7 platform)

    Now you will see User variables for your username and also System Variables.
    Go to the system variables and find a variable named Path (or PATH). Select edit. add ";<android_sdk>/tools" without the quotation.

    So if your android_sdk is located in "C:/users/username/my documents/androidSDK" that is what <android_sdk> represents.

    Therefore, you would add ";C:/users/username/my documents/androidSDK" to the path. Remember if you ever move the location of the android sdk you would now have to edit the Path variable again.

    The purpose behind this is so that when you use the command line, the terminal will know where to look.
