Solution 1: Install the 11.5.1 update for Dreamweaver CS5.5

Important: After installing this update, restart your computer.

To install the update automatically:

  1. Open Dreamweaver CS5.5.
  2. Choose Help > Updates.
  3. Follow the onscreen instructions to check for, download, and install the 11.5.1 update.

  4. After the update is installed, restart your computer.

To install the update manually:

    Mac OS
  1. If the AdobeDreamweaver-11.5-All-Update disk image automatically opens, go to step 3. Otherwise, double-click the downloaded file to open the disk image.

  3. Double-click the AdobePatchInstaller application, and then follow the onscreen instructions.
  4. After the update is installed, restart your computer.
    Windows
  1. Extract the contents of the downloaded ZIP file.

    Note: ZIP files are compressed files that contain other files. On Windows 7 or Vista, extract the contents of the ZIP file by right-clicking it, choosing Extract All, clicking Extract, and then opening the new Camera_Raw_5_6_updater folder. On Windows XP, extract the contents of the ZIP file by right-clicking it, choosing Open With > Compressed (Zipped) Folders, and then dragging all files and folders to your desktop.

  2. Double-click the AdobePatchInstaller executable, and then follow the onscreen instructions.

  3. After the update is installed, restart your computer.

After you update Dreamweaver, use Easy Install to install the Android SDK:

  1. Open Dreamweaver.
  2. Choose Site > Mobile Applications > Configure Application Framework.
  3. Click Easy Install. Follow any remaining onscreen instructions to complete the installation of the Android SDK.

Solution 2: Install the Android SDK manually

Note: These instructions are meant to provide an overview of the minimum steps required to install and configure the Android SDK for use by PhoneGap in Dreamweaver. Consult the Android Developers documentation for the latest and most complete information.

To install the Android SDK:

  1. Download the latest version of the Android SDK starter package for your operating system.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • Mac OS: Extract the contents of the ZIP to the desired location (such as /android-sdk).
    • Windows: If you downloaded the installer (.exe file), double-click it and follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation. If you downloaded the ZIP file, extract its contents to the desired location (such as C:\android-sdk).
  3. Open the Android SDK Manager by double-clicking the android file (or, on Windows, the android.bat file) in the ./tools folder of the Android SDK (/android-sdk/tools/android or C:\android-sdk\tools\android.bat).

    A command-line window opens, and then the Android SDK Manager application opens.

  4. Update the Android SDK Tools to the latest revision.
  5. Install the Android SDK Platform-tools.
  6. Install one or more AVDs (Android 2.2/API 8 recommended).

After you install the Android SDK, enter the folder path to it in Dreamweaver:

  1. Open Dreamweaver.
  2. Choose Site > Mobile Applications > Configure Application Framework.
  3. Enter the folder path, or browse to and select the folder, to which you installed the Android SDK.
  4. Click Save.
