How to import existing Android project into Eclipse?


I'm trying to import and existing Android project into my current Eclipse workspace. I select File->New->Android Project, which brings up the Android project dialog, I then select, "Create project from existing source", Location, Build Target and Finish.

I get the following error: Invalid project description.

Does anybody know how to get past this error?

Accepted Answer

Solved: If you want to "Create project from existing source", you need to create a new directory and then put the project directory tree into that new directory. Then point to the new directory when importing.

  1. File → Import → General → Existing Projects into Workspace → Next
  2. Select root directory: /path/to/project
  3. Projects → Select All
  4. Uncheck Copy projects into workspace and Add project to working sets
  5. Finish
