Unable to locate SDK Error

When installing the SDK tools, this is the minimum items that must be downloaded from the SDK Manager

Note: It doesn't have to be these exact versions, but you have to have the following:

  • Android SDK Tools
  • Android SDK Platform-Tools
  • Android SDK Build-Tools (at least one of them)
  • Android SDK Platform (at least one of them)
  • You can install any and everything else that you want, but these are the ONLY things that are required by Droid Explorer.
