    I can't get the sdk package to install on my windows 7. everytime I open the setup.exe
    it opens the command prompt and quickly disappears. Any ideas?

    try right clicking and hitting run as administrator
    or open it from the command prompt and see what it says

    I have the same issue. Are you by chance running the 64 bit version, because that's where I think the problems (from what I've read).

    I found one supposed solution to the problem online. It involved adding a line to the android.bat file pointing to teh 64-bit version of a file, but I tried it and it didn't work for me. I haven't had much time in the last few days to dedicate to it, so I haven't gone any further.

    Hi. I had this same issue. I installed the latest version of Java and that fixed it...the installer opened.

    **edit ...and I'm running 64-bit Win 7 and I did not make any changes to the files in the SDK.
