I am an Android beginner trying to get the environment setup. After downloading the SDK(android-sdk_r04-windows.zip), I run the SDK manager to download platforms, I only see the following list in the available packages
Google APIs by Google Inc., Android API 6, revision 1
Google APIs by Google Inc., Android API 5, revision 1
Google APIs by Google Inc., Android API 4, revision 2
Google APIs by Google Inc., Android API 3, revision 3
Usb Driver Package, revision 2
I added this site to get the above list, http://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/repository.xml. Default https site did not work. My platforms and addons directory is empty. I read the instructions multiple times and I googled quite a bit and did not find the answer. What am I missing. I was expecting to see platforms listed in the above list. I am behind a firewall. I appreciate your response.

It turns out that once I checked the option "Force http sources to be fetched using http://" on the settings page of the Android SDK and AVD manager, it retrieved all the items which also included the platforms by using the https link. Hopefully this helps someone else.
I was working through the same problem as you yesterday, Promod. Actually, I was first wondering why none of the targets already existed because all the tutorials online seemed to suggest that they should have already been there. Wish I would have caught your post yesterday!
