[Q] Creating/Running AVD through Eclipse with networked user profile

Search This thread


Aug 26, 2010
Our user profiles are stored on a networked share (\\shared-server\clientdata$\username). When I create an AVD through the SDK and AVD manager everything seems to appear to work correctly.

When I try to start it I get the following errors:

emulator: ERROR: unknown virtual device name: 'test_avd' emulator: could not find virtual device named 'test_avd'

I am assuming this has something to do with our user profile being on the network.

If I copy \\shared-server\clientdata$\username\.android to c:\Users\username\.android, after creating the AVD I can then start it up.

Is there an easier solution to this?
