Remember the location of the SDK directory on your system, in future you must refer to this SDK location, while setting up the ADT plugin and when using the SDK tools from command line. we use SDK location as  C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk.

After selecting the Android SDK install location, press Next.

Step 6 :
Next you will be asked to select the Start Menu Folder. If you do not want to make a Start Menu Folder select the box ” Do not create shortcuts”. If you want to create Start Menu Folder than just click Install button
