I'm trying to install a platform but when I open Android Manager then I click Available Software then select the https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/repository.xml repository
I get this error:
Failed to fetch URL https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/repository.xml
I have also tried downloading by clicking on force "http:" for all "https:" downloads on settings panel but it still doesn't help.
I'm working on Windows Vista.
If you enter the URL in a browser and then look at the source code of the page you will see that an XML document is returned.
The reason why that URL would work in a browser but not in the android manager might be that you are required to specify a proxy server. In Eclipse (3.5.2) the proxy settings can be found here: "Window" -> "Preferences" -> "General" -> "Network Connections"
Try this solution and it worked. this problem is caused because ADB is unable to connect to the android servers to fetch updates. (If at home try turning off firewall)
This should work immediately.
