This Error I got

I downloaded NodeJS and install Following

npm -g install phonegap npm -g install cordova npm -g install plugman npm -g install ant

I set some path for that

PATH C:\Documents and Settings\avaya11\Application Data\npm;C:\Documents and Settings\avaya11\Application Data\npm\node_modules\ant;C:\NEW ANDROID\sdk\platforms;C:\NEW ANDROID\sdk\platform-tools;C:\Documents and Settings\avaya11\Application Data\npm\node_modules\ant\bin;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_45\bin

this is ANT_HOME path that i downloaded from <a href="http://apache.claz.org//ant/binaries/apache-ant-1.9.3-bin.zip" rel="nofollow">here</a>

ANT_HOME C:\Program Files\Java\apache-ant-1.9.3


I did all possible ways but still found error PLZ help me to find solution I think I confused to set a path.


After so much research work I found the answer.

I have not set path of the xcopy.

<strong>xcopy.exe</strong> - this file contains sdk platform information. So I added path of this. xcopy.exe is located in system32 folder.

So I added path like this and I able to add android platform.



this path issues

Click on the Start menu in the lower-left corner of the desktop, right-click on Computer, then click Properties.

Click Advanced System Settings in the column on the left.

In the resulting dialog box, press Environment Variables.

Select the PATH variable and press Edit.

Append the following to the PATH based on where you installed the SDK, for example


<a href="http://docs.phonegap.com/en/3.3.0/guide_platforms_android_index.md.html#Android%20Platform%20Guide" rel="nofollow">refer</a>
