Android – parseSdkContent failed

By -
Problem: ‘Android SDK Content Loader’ has encountered a problem. parseSdkContent failed
Solution:

Today i just have started development under the Eclipse Indigo environment and while setting Android SDK preferences, i suddently got the following error:

‘Android SDK Content Loader’ has encountered a problem.
parseSdkContent failed
java.lang.NullPointerException.

I have tried to do google around half an hour to know the reason behind this and solve the same, let me share a possible(i am not sure this works for you but it worked for me) solution which i got during the searching:

The issue is in the your-avd-name.ini that is located at ….android on your Windows machine (if you’re Windows user). When any error occurs during the avd.ini parser, the Google ADT plugin tries to access a map that is null. The workaround is to delete the offending .ini file and recreate your avd(s).

I got this information from: http://bit.ly/papflT
