File Not Found Error Installing Android Support Library

I was going through the Google Android tutorial for creating your first Android project when I came to the final step (Step 5) in “Creating a Project with Eclipse”.  I was at the final step in the Eclipse wizard to create an Android project and when I clicked finish I found out I did not have the Android Support Library installed.  I tried, and failed, to install it from withing Eclipse.  This was the error I received in the console:

Downloading Android Support Library, revision 10
File not found: C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\temp\ (Access is denied)

Done. Nothing was installed.

Next, I tried to install it using the Android SDK Manager (Extras -> Android Support Library).  I received the same error.

I looked a little closer at the error and saw the “Access is denied” error.  I restarted the Android SDK Manager, this time though I ran it as Administrator.  This time the Android Support Libary installed without any problems.
