Failed to get the required ADT version number from the

    you upgrade Android Studio to 2.3?
    in console D:\Programas\AppData\Local\Android\SDK\tools\traceview.bat
    This error is caused by the lack of traceview.bat files,download traceview.bat,and places to the file into your SDK\tools

    Please download a new SDK for Eclipse,Android Studio use another.
    Hope to help you!

    See Eclipse: Failed to get the required ADT version number from the SDK

    Download Old Version SDK

    You can download your adt from Eclipse Marketplace or Install New Software otherwise you can also specify the adt installed directory.

    Here we are going to see about the Eclipse Marketplace.

    Select Help-> Eclipse Marketplace

    and then type adt and then install the adt plugin.
    enter image description here

    1. Download earlier version of SDK tools ( Replace suffix -windows with -macosx or -linux to get packages for other platforms.
    2. Unpack to sdk-eclipse directory, you’ll have following directory structure sdk-eclipse/tools/ .
    3. Run android.bat from tools directory and download required platforms and build tools. Be careful NOT TO UPDATE SDK TOOLS!
    4. Change Android SDK directory in Eclipse (Windows->Preferences->Android, SDK Location) to your new directory “sdk-eclipse”.

    The executable file of SDK Manager is disappeared in the sdk path, I guess it was removed forcefully by Google.

    By the way, Eclipse shows the error in the console view when I run a project:

    [2017-03-16 15:40:53 - DDMS] DDMS files not found: /Users/MyName/Library/Android/sdk/tools/traceview 

    There may be a solution to find the SDK Manager.exe for windows users, see: Android studio 2.3 canary missing 'Launch Standalone SDK Manager' option in 'SDK Manager' , but for the Linux base users, I have no idea…

    Could any one help resolve it in the Mac?

    1.Download the sdk file from this link.

    2.Unzip it.

    3.Place this two file into: /Users/computer_name/AppData/Local/Android/sdk/ or you can place it your desire place.

    1. Then open eclipse IDE.

    2. Go to the Windows->preferences->change the sdk location.

    3. And place the location where the sdk located.
      Example: if you store those two file in /Users/computer_name/AppData/Local/Android/sdk/ the set the location -> /Users/computer_name/AppData/Local/Android/sdk/sdk.

    note:Here sdk/sdk because you store downloaded two file – sdk file & SDK Manager into the sdk file.

    Happy Coding 🙂
