Got the Solution of the Problem Here Kindly Refer to the link below in case of similar problem

Vast to go to Window-> preferences-> Android in eclipse and change the path of the old 8.3 format SDK.

For example, if you have:

C: \ Program Files \ Android \ android-sdk should change to:

C: \ PROGRA ~ 1 \ Android \ android-sdk
