Developing for Android on Windows 7 using Eclipse

I have followed all the necessary installation and setup steps for Eclipse 3.4 + ADT + Android SDK on Windows 7.

I followed the Hello, Android tutorial in Eclipse and code-completion also works like a charm. No errors shown.

unfortunately the emulator never shows up.

When I run the project. I have fullfilled the same steps in a virtual Windows XP machine and - though very slow - it does work there.

I have not found anything about known problems with Windows 7. What can I do?

Answer 1

Try launching the emulator from the command line with the -verbose option as this may help determine why it is failing:

emulator -verbose -avd <avd name>

To a get a list with the names of AVDs you've set up enter:

android list avd

(If nothing shows up when you list your AVDs that's your problem.)

Answer 2

Ensure you are running the app as an android app and as Dave Webb suggest ensure you have an emulator "profile" created. I created one to meet my HTC Hero and I use Windows 7 (x64).

NOTE: You might also want to unplug your HTC device, if its connected to the PC. I've noticed that if its plugged in the apps will download and run directly on the real device. Thats probably by design and intentional. ;-)
