Android Development on Windows Cheat Sheet
Trying to bring up an Android emulator using Eclipse, I kept getting the error:
Unknown virtual device name.
Could not find virtual device.
It turns out there is an issue with using non-default home directories in Windows. Since I never run with my home directory on the C drive (mine happens to be on G:\doten) I had to create a user environment variable to point the Android SDK to the proper location:
ANDROID_SDK_HOME = G:\doten
The emulator then start up properly.
Well, sort of. The emulator would start then immediately crash. Turns out there’s some issue with using 8 MB for the SD Card size. Deleted the virtual device and recreated with an SD Card size of 10 MB and all is good.
