Installing Android SKD for Eclipse

Today I was trying to install the Android SDK for Eclipse for a new project I’ll work on. After downloading the necessary packages I got some strange error I couldn’t resolve quickly, so I like to share the solution with you guys.

The error Eclipse returned was

Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be found.
Software being installed: Android Development Tools **** ( ****)
Missing requirement: Android Development Tools **** ( ****)
requires 'org.eclipse.wst.sse.core 0.0.0' but it could not be found

What I did to produce the error

I installed Eclipse and the Android SDK tested the Android SDK by creating an AVD.

After running Eclipse I tried to add the url to my Available Software Sites to install the Eclipse package. After selecting all the Developer Tools in the filtered list for this Software Site and hitting Next I received the error as I added above

The solution

After some googling I found a tip that I needed to add another Software Site to Eclipse.

After adding and retrying to install the Android Developer Tools all went well.
