adt 22 2 new app wizard unsupported template dependency upgrade your android e

adt 22 2 new app wizard unsupported template dependency upgrade your android e  using -'android,eclipse-adt'

I found some answers to that issue but none worked for me. When getting the last screen in a new project creation, I'm getting the next message:

  Unsupported template dependency: Upgrade your Android Eclipse plugin

The required version is empty (in some cases appears as 8). The installed version is 18.

I already tried many of the solutions I found here, like:

Run the SDK manager as administrator
Run Eclipse as administrator
Re-install the support components from the SDK extra folder and then restart Eclipse,

None of these didn't work for me.

Is there another solution?

Update 2: Now (2013-09-19T17:00:00Z) there's an ADT 22.2.1 and Tools 22.2.1 updates available that fix this issue:

  • Use Eclipse > Help > Check for Updates to get ADT 22.2.1
  • Use SDK Manager to get Tools 22.2.1

You need both parts to fix the issue. The ADT bundle and the installer package on have been updated too.

(From here)

Update: The bug report now has a response with fixed template files attached and the following comments:

This one is my bad. I was in the middle of changing the dependency system used by the templates and a transient state got picked up into this tools build. The templates have settled in the AOSP master branch.

I've attached a snapshot of the current Activities templates. Replacing your sdk/tools/templates/activities folder with the contents of this zip should resolve this issue.

I apologize for the inconvenience.

My older workaround below.

Workaround to the bug:

For Blank Activity:

  1. Edit /tools/templates/activities/BlankActivity/template.xml

  2. Comment out the dependency:


For Master/Detail Flow:

  1. Edit /tools/templates/activities/MasterDetailFlow/template.xml

  2. Comment out the dependencies:



  • Restart Eclipse

If needed, copy android-support-v4.jar from /extras/support/v4 to your libs.

@҆antińá A. Miroslav - I'm not sure why, but deleting the SDK tools does not downgrade to the previous version. The folder /tools just disappeared and a path not found error occurred.

I tried to download from, unzip it and replace it with the /tools folder to downgrade the SDK tools, and it worked for me.

I have the same issue. It happen when I upgraded the Android SDK Tools to Rev. 22.2. Downgrading to a older version will get rid of the problem.

I was facing same problem the last couple of hours, and I resolved it... I downloaded the SDK (for my Mac) from the link below.

[For Mac]

[For Windows]

[For Linux]

I went to Android installed directory --> tool and replaced all the content with the downloaded files.

I restarted Eclipse, executed New Project, and it's working fine!

Please try my workaround:

  1. Create a new project using command line
    • Notes: DO NOT create it in Eclipse's workspace, create it elsewhere e.g. ~/tmp/
    • e.g. android create project --target 1 --name MyAndroidApp --path ./MyAndroidAppProject --activity MyAndroidAppActivity --package com.example.myandroid
  2. Then in Eclipse, "Import" the project you've just created

Working solution

I downloaded the adt-bundle-windows-x86_64-20130729 from After I updated, I also got the same error as you got. Without updating, I created the project, so now it's running. So do this step. This error is coming because of a version mismatch. So do this step.

Hopefully this will solve your problem.

You need to update your ADT plugin for it.The latest version of an Android SDK tool is 22.2.1 and for that you need ADT bundle 22.2.1. Download link for it is
