  6. In the User Variables view, double-click the Path to change this variable. As Variable Value, write C:\Program Files\Java\jre6bin then click OK.
  7. In the System Variables view, double-click the Path to change this variable. Add the android tools directory to the end of the current value in Variable Value as C:\android\tools then click OK.
  8. Now you are ready to use Eclipse IDE. You can download the latest version of Eclipse from the official download page. You can choose the type of your operating system from the list and start download.
