On Windows 7, the Program Files directory is protected so apps can't automatically write there. The simplest solution I've heard is just to install Eclipse into a user-writable location instead. For example, C:\Java\Eclipse

You should be able to just move your entire eclipse directory, there's no registry entries or anything else that ties Eclipse to the place where you extracted it.

[Edit] Have you checked that the directory it is complaining about i actually writable? Other than that, I really don't have any ideas. I haven't worked on Windows in several years and never with Win7. My only other suggestion is to just download the latest Eclipse, install it to a new location (do NOT intall it over top of your existing Eclipse), and point it to your existing workspace.

Eclipse update not working, An error occurred while collecting items to be installed "Zugriff verweigert" means "Access denied", so I guess it's a matter of access rights. Go to Help → Install new software → Here uncheck “Contact all update sites during install to find required software” Eclipse will prompt that the content isn't authorized or something like that. just ignore and continue. then everything will be OK.

None of the above worked for me.

Instead, I tried installing the plugins I needed via the Eclipse Market Place, and that worked without issue.

  1. Click "Help" Menu.
  2. Click "Eclipse Marketplace..." menu item.
  3. Enter the name of the plugin you want.
  4. Click "Install" when the plugin appears in the Marketplace List.
  5. Restart Eclipse.

  • My ADT bundle from the Android Developer Site had the "http" version of the URL preset. I had to add another one and paste in the URL with "https" to get it to work.
  • Replacing http for https worked for me! Wasted couple of hours on this problem. Thanks for the answer!
  • Thanks! This worked great! Go to Help -> Install New Software -> Click "Available Software Sites" link -> Select "Android Developer Tools Update Site" -> Click "Edit" Button -> Change the http:// in "Location" text box to "https://".
