Default Android SDK/Android.bat does not find SWT.jar file

Hey guys, the issue at hand now is the SDK/android.bat does not locate the SWT file.

I'm running Windows 7 x64, my file locations are as follows:

Android SDK (zip version) - C:\android-sdk-windows

SWT.jar (from the Zip) - C:\android-sdk-windows\tools\lib\ --- in these folders -->(x86)32bit and (x86_64)64bit

JDK 6u24 x64 - C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_24

My environment variables are as follows:

ANDROID_SWT = C:\android-sdk-windows\tools\lib\x86_64

Path = ;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_24\bin

Ok, now then, i was able to get java running thanks to Alpine but that led me to the following issue.

Upon execution of the Android SDK manager, a black command screen quickly flashes and disseapears, it doesn't start the SDK therefore i cannot download any of the platforms nor add-ons.

-Note that i have those files already from the zip (platforms and ad-ons)-

I've traced the culprit to the android.bat file but can't seem to figure it out. I've set the environment variable for the SWT.jar file. I didn't modify the .bat file in any way so far.

The following is my bat file and the error is located near the bottom. @echo off rem Copyright (C) 2007 The Android Open Source Project rem rem Licensed under the Apache License, Version 2.0 (the "License"); rem you may not use this file except in compliance with the License. rem You may obtain a copy of the License at rem rem http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0 rem rem Unless required by applicable law or agreed to in writing, software rem distributed under the License is distributed on an "AS IS" BASIS, rem WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, either express or implied. rem See the License for the specific language governing permissions and rem limitations under the License.

rem arguments, to display the SDK Updater UI. This allows the updater to
rem update the tools directory where the updater itself is located.

set tmp_dir=%TEMP%\temp-android-tool

copy /B /D /Y lib\commons-compress* %tmp_dir%\lib\ > nul

rem jar_path and swt_path are relative to PWD so we don't need to adjust them, just change dirs.
set tools_dir=%cd%
cd /d %tmp_dir%


rem The global ANDROID_SWT always override the SWT.Jar path if defined ANDROID_SWT set swt_path=%ANDROID_SWT%

if exist %swt_path% goto SetPath echo ERROR: SWT folder '%swt_path%' does not exist. echo Please set ANDROID_SWT to point to the folder containing swt.jar for your platform. goto :EOF

:SetPath rem Finally exec the java program and end here. call %java_exe% -Dcom.android.sdkmanager.toolsdir="%tools_dir%" -Dcom.android.sdkmanager.workdir=%work_dir% -classpath "%jar_path%;%swt_path%\swt.jar" com.android.sdkmanager.Main %*

rem EOF

This is what i get upon executing the bat file via command prompt

If you have any idea on how to fix this that would be awesome!
