Missing adb.exe

I am new to android,

I followed the step in the android main page for installing android with eclipse.

1) I installed the SDK
2) I added the ADT Plugin in eclipse.

But when I am giving the path of SDK through eclipse 's Window > Preferences.
It says adb.exe not found and actually the adb.exe is missing when i check in the tools folder.
I did check for updates in the eclipse as i found in google search that by doing this it solves this problem but it is not solving here.
please help to solve it.

If you do a directory listing of the tools directory, what is the first file to be listed (alphabetically)?

The first file of tools , that is adb.exe was missing , it got moved to platform-tools .
