But xml file don’t open the error message :
“This version of the rendering library is more recent than your version of ADT plug-in. Please update ADT plug-in”.
It seem that my ADT version is old for this recent project although I have installed v18.104.22.168 .

Do you use
Eclipse ADT Bundle, I mean – before
Android Studio 1.0 was released there was ADT Bundle – Eclipse with additional Android tools.
Well I see, it’s still available to download: http://tools.android.com/recent/eclipseadtbundleupdated
If you use it, please delete it and download clean Eclipse from this site:
If you’re planning to develop also in the other languages than Android accomodated Java, please free to download for example:
Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers
I had used
Eclipse for EclipseEclipse IDE for Eclipse Committers 4.5.1` and ‘Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers’, so I’m sure these are higly compatible with newet ADT Plugin.
After you install Eclipse, you need to download and unpack
Stand-alone SDK Tools, where you would find [here] http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html#Other
Note: Already the latest version of Android SDK is

Configure the ADT Plugin
Once Eclipse restarts, you must specify the
location of your
Android SDK directory:

Use existing SDKs.
- Browse and select the location of the Android SDK directory you recently downloaded and unpacked.

In July 2017, Eclipse Oxygen is out and ADT is weakly supported (or unsupported). But it’s still often necessary to get these working together properly (reasons vary). Here are instruction to bring up an Eclipse Oxygen (latest at the time of writing) with the ADT on Ubuntu Linux 16.04 (latest LTS at time).
- I started from a clean install of Ubuntu
- Install OpenJDK 8
sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk
I needed OpenJDK 7 for my project (skip if not needed)
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openjdk-r/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk
- Download Eclipse Oxygen (I chose the Java bundle) and install.
- Run Eclipse and close the welcome screen, get to the place where there is a blank workspase
- In your browser, go the Eclipse Marketplace where the ADT is provided. At the time of writing, it was here.
- Drag the “Install” button from the web page to the workstation pane in the running Eclipse (size your windows so that you can see both). The cursor will have a plus sign when dragged over the correct place. Then “drop”/release the icon. The install should proceed from there.
- Eclipse will ask to restart, do so.
- No Android SDK will be found, follow the prompts to get one setup.
- The SDK Build Tools may be out of date, causing an error, but ADT will prompt to install the latest, follow the prompts.
- I had an ADB error in the log window until I finished setting up the SDK and tool and then restarted Eclipse.
Hope this helps.
