(3) Installing Android SDK
If you plan to use the HAC Easy Installer then skip this step and goto step (4)
If you plan to use the HAC Standard Installer and do not already have the Android SDK installed then download and install the Android SDK as follows:-
The Android SDK can be downloaded from:-
Click on the recommended installer .exe version for Windows and it will download to your computer.
When downloaded install the Android SDK to the default location or some other place on your Operating System disk so that HAC can find and setup the file paths. If the Android SDK is installed on another disk then the file paths will have to be setup manually.
The Android SDK will not install unless you have already installed the Java JDK, occasionally it will fail to see a successfully installed JDK, if this happens simply click the "Back" button and then "Next" and this usually fixes the problem.
Once installed the Android SDK window will open and allow you to choose which updates to install. Make sure you install Android 2.3.1 (API 9) because HAC apps are expected to be able to run on Android devices such as the HTC G1. Note, this needs the checkbox Obsolete ticking otherwise the option API 9 does not appear in the list.
a: press the "Update all" button and a new window will open
b: check the "Accept all" radio button and press "Install", this can take anything up to a couple of hours depending on the speed of your internet connection and your computer.
c: when the updates are complete close the SDK window.
