Eclipse version is “Kepler” Android SDK version appears to be 22.0.4.
- Bring up Eclipse. Select the workspace where I have put my Android projects (AndroidStuff).
- Per instruction in the book, create an AVD. (Section 1.3) Settings for the AVD are as follows: In this version, I have to select a device. This is not documented in 3rd editon of the book. I select Nexus 4 as a device.
Target is Android 4.3 - API level 18
Keyboard: Check Hardware keyboard present box Skin: Display a skin with hardware controls Front camera: None Back camera: None Memory options: RAM: 128 VM Heap: 64 Internal Storage: 200 MiB SD card: 64 MiB Emulation options: Check “Use Host GPU”. I had also tried checking “Snapshot”
elect this created AVD. Click on Start button. Get window with Launch Options. Don’t change anything. Click Launch. Window with emulator comes up. Eventualy get set of 4 messages in Console window: [2013-07-28 11:12:28 - hierarchyviewer]Unable to get view server version from device emulator-5554 [2013-07-28 11:12:28 - hierarchyviewer]Unable to get view server protocol version from device emulator-5554 [2013-07-28 11:12:28 - ViewServerDevice]Unable to debug device: emulator-5554 [2013-07-28 11:12:28 - hierarchyviewer]Unable to get the focused window from device emulator-5554
What is wrong? Where can I get documentation for this version of the AVD Manager? What is the meaning of Snapshot and Use Host GPU Emulation Options?
