Android SDK does not work with defaults used in installation!!!

So, this week I’ve started some simple Android app development. I started by downloading and installing the SDK, of course… Of course, the emulators don’t seem to work. Upon just a little digging, I found this:

That’s right– Google’s Android SDK doesn’t work on the most dominant desktop OS with the default install parameters… Seriously? How can Google act so amateurishly? Installer-writing 101 is to check on your #1 targeted platform, which would be **Desktop Windows versions**… How sad… ┬áTo solve my problem, I’m un-installing and re-installing at a non-‘Program Files’-ish path… Hackin’ it up to make it work for Google…
