File not found error on Android SDK update

When you try to upgrade the Android SDK on Microsoft Windows with the SDK Manager show the following error lines:

File not found: C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\temp\platform-tools_r12-windows.zip (Access is denied)
Skipping ‘Android SDK Tools, revision 20’; it depends on ‘Android SDK Platform-tools, revision 12’ which was not installed.

Close the SDK Manager and Run as Administrator (Start -> All Programs -> Android SDK Tools -> Right-click SDK Manager, select “Run as administrator” then click Yes).
