Android Emulator no longer launched in debug session

Hi all;

Ok, I just started with Android development today. At first it was working fine launching the emulator when I started the debug session (although it took over a minute to actually run my code).

But now it doesn't launch. No error message, but the console only has:

Waiting for device.

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\tools\emulator.exe" -avd MyAvd0 -netspeed full -netdelay none

And the emulator never launches. I rebooted and that didn't help.

Any ideas?

thanks - dave

Does the emulator start if you run it directly from the AVD Manager, not from IDEA?

I suspect that emulator image or snapshot got corrupted which happens sometimes and is not specific
to IDEA.

The solution would be to delete emulator snapshot and/or data images:
c:\Users\USER\.android\avd\EMULATOR.avd\*.img .
