I'm not very tech savy in this area and this code all looks like gibberish to me :blush: I've looked at the FAQ and seen a few reasons it may not work but I can't figure out which one.

First, because you're doing Android development, you may not get a
completely accurate diagnosis and recommendation in this forum.
If you'd read the sticky posts at the top of this forum, you'd know
better than to post Android questions here.
This said, assuming ADT's requirements don't get in the way here, I
would say the following.
a) ADT is probably not being done using Java 8 just yet and, while it
should work, you might give yourself headaches by trying to do it.
Again, check with an Android forum.
b) The path to your Java, whatever its version, indicates you've not
installed a proper, let along private JDK, which you should do. Go to
java.sun.com, choose Downloads -> Popular Downloads -> Java for
Developers, then install the latest Java 7 (which today, and possibly
for evermore, is 7u67). Don't install this for the whole computer, which
you can't do anyway since Guest isn't an Administrative user. Instead,
install it to a locally accessible path, then edit eclipse.ini and tell
it where you put it using the -vm option. Please read
c) Eclipse is personal productivity software. It's not so much for a
shared-computing environment although plenty of smart people have been
able to set it up that way. I advise against it because you don't want
to be wasting your time (and ours) sorting out little oversights. It's
not as if drives were 20Gb and cost $1000 any more. Your own Eclipse,
plus ADT plus a private JDK and all your source code will likely weigh
in at less than 1Gb.
d) The Guest account should work unless Eclipse and its dependencies
require access to path the Guest can't reach. Why wouldn't Jeremy Joseph
Ellmer just give you a proper account to work from?
Hope this helps.
