"Cannot find repository" error and installing Tizen SDK for Wearable

The Tizen SDK for Wearable is one of the prerequisite software that must be installed if you want to develop applications for the Samsung  Gear, as detailed in the website So I downloaded and ran the installer, which popped up the following error message "Cannot start Tizen SDK for Wearable Install Manager. Cannot find repository. Please check your repository.", as shown in the screen shot below.

I could not find any instructions on the page on what this repository is about. Eventually, I figured out that I needed to download an appropriate SDK image for my development platform - an Intel Windows 7 64 bit machine. These images can be downloaded from the same page

Once the image file has been downloaded, do the following:

  1. Click the Advanced button.

  2. Toggle on SDK Image. Click the file icon. Browse and select the downloaded SDK image file, e.g. Click Open.

    The following appears.

  3. Click OK.

  4. Click Next.

  5. Agree to the Licence Agreement. Click Next.

  6.  Click Next.

  7. Optional. In the Install Tizen SDK for Wearable field, specify another folder.
  8. Click Install.

    The Intel Hardware Accelerated Execution Manager Setup wizard appears.
  9. Click Next.

    The SDK is installed.
  10. Click Close
