Use the Update Manager feature of your Eclipse installation to install the latest revision of ADT on your development computer.<>

Assuming that you have a compatible version of the Eclipse IDE installed, as described in Preparing for Installation, above, follow these steps to download the ADT plugin and install it in your Eclipse environment.

  1. Start Eclipse, then select Help > Install New Software….
  2. Click Add, in the top-right corner.
  3. In the Add Repository dialog that appears, enter “ADT Plugin” for the Name and the following URL for the Location:
  4. Click OKNote: If you have trouble acquiring the plugin, try using “http” in the Location URL, instead of “https” (https is preferred for security reasons).
  5. In the Available Software dialog, select the checkbox next to Developer Tools and click Next.
  6. In the next window, you’ll see a list of the tools to be downloaded. Click Next.
  7. Read and accept the license agreements, then click Finish.Note: If you get a security warning saying that the authenticity or validity of the software can’t be established, click OK.
  8. When the installation completes, restart Eclipse.

Wait for long long time in Calculating requirements and dependencies

But you keep waiting … So, you may have your problem in the firewall, and is it blocking the eclipse.exe access to internet connection ? If not then you may need to install the Java SDK.

Download the Java from here.

During this time I use the Java Platform (JDK) 7u1 for Windows x64 jdk-7u1-windows-x64.exe  (Java SE Development Kit 7 Downloads )

After that open the Eclipse again,
Click on the menubar
Windows… Preferences, select Install / Update and then click on the
link for Automatic Updates,
change the settings to:

  • Look for updates each time the platform is started
  • Search for updates and notify me when they are available
  • Notify me once about updates

Click on apply and then Ok.
Restart Eclipse, let the auto-update run.

So try the step from the Android Document : Downloading the ADT Plugin then you are able to download.

Note: You may need to wait longer than 10 minutes to finish download the ADT Plugin. Just be patient…
