ran installer again. Got error message



but the mentioned folder doesn't exist.

I gave up wasting my time with LeapDroid ...

I am sorry for the frustration you have been experiencing. We will fix the issue in our next release. But let me at least explain what happened.

1. The first installation seems to hang @ downloading page. That's a misleading text we will fix. Actually, the installer does not download anything more. It is just the progress bar has been given an initial text as downloading and will be changed to installing very soon. People should not be able to see this if everything goes smooth.
2. Can we know the full screen shot? Or do you remember when installer failed first time whether a prompt message window showed on Windows task bar? The reason why I am asking this is that the installer may wait for users to click "OK" on that prompt Window however if that prompt is not shown on top......
3. Our installer will place engine at C:\Program Files\Leapdroid\VM and place ROM at <My Documents>\Leapdroid\VMs. Both "C:\Program Files" and <My Documents> are just examples here since your Windows installation may place the folders in other locations. If something remains there, we ask for a clean up. In next release, we will strengthen that part trying to do the clean up for the user.

Again, I am very sorry.

@ImageCraft, honestly speaking, we haven't thought of a good way for updating yet, so for the next few versions, the updated will clear all data. We are investigating about upgrading, such as OTA, but no final decision yet. Any suggestions are welcome.

About this, would it be possible add a specific setting for those ROMs path?

Another vital feature, for me at least, is the ability to install/run the emulator WITHOUT admin privileges.
That's kinda mandatory for me


EDIT:
About "updates", I don't think it's a so sensitive problem, as long as there is a way to "backup" data/apps.
Imho, even uninstalling/reinstalling, with an option to keep data/app is good enough (that's one way to update BlueStacks, for example).
Another suggestion could be to keep the filesystems in separate locations.
The actual system ROM could be in the actual installation directory (choosen at install time), while data ROM (filesystem, vdi, vdmk, whatever that is) could be placed inside "<MyDocument>/etc/etc/" (having an option to decide this as well, wouldn't be so bad).

@ rumbla About admin rights, Leapdroid installations required admin rights, as it needs to install a kernel module. Once installed, you can run android apps without admin rights, i.e., you can launch and run Android games from any accounts.

To install apk, you will have to use adb for now. We include adb binary inside the installation folder, i.e.,

cd "c:\proram files\leapdroid\vm"
adb install \path\yourapp.apk

We will add drag and drop soon

Wow, I'm literally installing all android emulator out there. And Memu is my best bet right now. I'm running on low end PC so... let see if this one is better.

Edit: I just tested it, it seems fast. I tested my PC using 3D Mark and got solid 60fps most of the time. But unfortunately antutu won't run at all, it just stopped working. Also tested some games I interested in (Brave Frontier and Phantom of The Kill) and it load to the main screen and then crashed to home. I don't really know the version/state of the emulator, but it seems promising. I'll keep an eye for this.

Edit2: I'm gonna take back what I said. I don't know the problem but now it's playable. And fast too.

@Skcyte thanks for the feedbacks, our team has the depth to make leapdroid the best emulator in the world. We will test Antutu on more PCs to reproduce the crashes. Antutu works fine on our PCs.

We compared performances side by side to other emulators, and Leapdroid beats all others on the market.

I just downloaded this and now have the message " The signature of LeapdroidVMInstallerFull.exe is corrupt or invalid." is it safe to install?

Gave it a new chance. Again installation miserably failed.


The MSVCR100.DLL claimed to be missing is housed both in C:\Windows\System32 and C:\Windows\SysWOW64. Hence it should be found by the installer.
