1. Unable to run develop Android with Eclipse

Hi all,
Please bear with me and help me out. I have followed all the steps
required to develop Android applications on my Windows..using Eclipse
3.4 (Ganymede).
- Installed Java SDK 5.0
- Downloaded Eclipse 3.4
- Downloaded Android SDK 1.1_r1
- Got the ADT plugin for Eclipse by Help>Software Update >
- Restarted Eclipse...
- Go to Windows > Preferences > I should see Android in the left panel
so I can set the paths.
For some reason I do not see this....I dont see Android in the left

I have tried everything....but cant figure it out. Initially, I
thought this could be because the Envoirment variables are not set

point to Android-sdk-windows-1.1_r1/tools. When I do this and try to
start Eclipse...it says "cannot find java virtual machine" so then I
have set the "path" variable as such
Path: "C:\Windows\System32\;C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My

Still I can't see Android in the Eclipse preferences...
please suggest what can be done to fix this...Thank you so much in


2. RemoteViews should support EditText

In 1.5 many widgets could use EditText (ala Google Search "widget"),
but unfortunately EditText is not a @RemoteView.  My initial thinking
is that EditText fields should require a "submit" Button/ImageButton.
So the procedure for getting a value from an EditText:

- init your RemoteViews
- call a method like for each EditText: RemoteViews.attachEditToButton
( int edit_text_id, int button_id, String extra_key)
- setup your Button's PendingIntent via
- now, when your Button is clicked, the Strings from any EditTexts
attached to it would be added to the Extras for the Button's Intent
using the Extra Key supplied in attachEditToButton().

Any thoughts or pitfalls?  Seems like this would be fairly easy to
