The emulator does not come up


The book indicates that it takes some time for the emulator to start, but it still had not started about 6 hours after I had tried to run the GeoQuiz app. There are no error messages, status, or any other indications as to why it doesn’t come up. I also tried starting the emulator from the AVD manager, and it gives the following message: “emulator: ERROR: This AVD’s configuration is missing a kernel file!!” I wonder if there’s something I failed to download or configure properly.


I’m having this issue also; anyone have some helpful input? I’ve tried deleting/reinstalling the SDK packages but to no avail.

Edit: I finally got the emulator working. I’m still not sure exactly what did it, but it’s working.
