Trouble getting Android emulator to run in eclipse

Trouble getting Android emulator to run in eclipse

 

Problem:

I’m trying to run the SDK Samples on the Emulator in Eclipse 3.5

Most of the time the AVD Manager hangs when I try to create a new AVD. When I manage to create an AVD and try to start the emulator I get this:

emulator: ERROR: no search paths found in this AVD’s configuration weird, the AVD’s config.ini file is malformed. Try re-creating it.

Solution 1:

You can set the environment variable ANDROID_SDK_HOME. For example:

ANDROID_SDK_HOME=D:\Development\android-sdk\. Add this variable to <eclipseFolder>\configuration\.settings\org.eclipse.ui.ide.prefs:

ANDROID_SDK_HOME=D:\Development\android-sdk\

Stop the process adb.exe and (re)start Eclipse.

Solution 2:

If you have special character in your username do this:

~/.android/avd on OS X and Linux,

C:\Documents and Settings\user\.android\ on Windows XP, and

C:\Users\user\.android\avd on Windows Vista, 7.

There name.ini and name.avd folder

  • copy the folder for example: C:\
  • modifiy the path in the .ini to path=C:\name.avd
