Running Android emulator in Eclipse

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

As I have been developing Android apps in using the Eclipse + Android development environment on Windows, I noticed the debugger would sometimes not connect to the emulator device. To address this problem, the following steps are required in Eclipse’s window:

  1. Open the DDMS perspective (Window > Open Perspective > Other > DDMS).
  2. Locate the Devices tab.
  3. Find the small drop down button (see figure).
  4. Choose reset adb.

This has solved the issue for me, and I hope it solves your issue too!
