I can not start emulator

Common bugs/problems with the Android SDK the Emulator and the ADT-Plugin.

I can not start emulator

Postby androooooid » Fri Sep 26, 2008 8:51 pm

C:\eclipse\android-sdk-windows-1.0_r1\tools>emulator
it seems too many emulator instances are running on this machine. Aborting


What am I doing wrong?

I tried to do adb kill-server
and that works
and then I try adb devices

C:\eclipse\android-sdk-windows-1.0_r1\tools>adb devices
* daemon not running. starting it now *
* daemon started successfully *
List of devices attached

Then I try emulator again and it gives me the same error
"it seems too many emulator instances are running on this machine. Aborting"

No emulator is running in the process and I tried wipe_data and everything and nothing works.

I am on Windows Vista.

Help!

First try if you are able to open Emulator from dos mode...
Navigate to android-sdk-windows-1.0_r1\tools and type emulator from command prompt ..


Under task manager kill if any process called Emulator.exe is running previously..

Thank you for the reply, but I went ahead and did a cold restart and that solved the problem. It wasn't showing up in task manager at the time of the event which was weird.
