If you use Eclipse like we do, you do not need the SDK. The Android SDK Stands for Software Development Kit, so if you are not building applications (like we do for a living), the SDK is pure wasted space. The only two parts of the SDK that is used by the end user is:
1) adb (Android Debug Bridge)
2) fastboot (Utility used to flash software to the Kindle)
The above applications total about 0.9104MB and the entire SDK is about 411MB - having said this, the end user is wasting almost 410MB of precious drive space. Remember, to keep the PC running smooth, the best practice is to remove the programs that you do not use.
Most of the utilities you will use on your Tablet are already packaged with adb and fastboot, so in the end the Android SDK becomes a problem rather than an asset.
So what do we recommend for you:
1. Remove or Disable the SDK
a) Disable - Navigate to C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools - rename platform-tools to platform-tools-temp
b) Remove - Go into Microsoft Windows Add/Remove Programs - Remove Android SDK
2. Remove BlueStack - into Microsoft Windows Add/Remove Programs - Remove BlueStack (you can reinstall latter)
Also, you have issues with the driver OR you do not have ADB Enabled on the Kindle Fire HD 8.9" - go into More+ Device, Turn On 'Allow Installation of Applications. Then go into More+ Security, Turn On 'Enable ADB'. If all this is OK, then you need to reinstall the Kindle Fire Driver, we have install notes on this page - Section A:
