android emulator has stopped working

Posted 29 July 2014 - 10:42 AM

i only started android development like a month ago, and haven't worked on it for about 2 weeks because of the annoying ass emulator. it was uber slow (i'd wait 10 mins for it to just load up) then randomly decided to stop working so i gave up on this game that i wanted to make.

i really want to start working on it again so if anyone can help me resolve this problem it would be highly appreciated. i've attached a screenshot:



thanks in advance for any help!

no idea about the error, but you can install a accelerator for your avd in the sdk package(check google how to do this). the emulator will load and run alot faster.

If your emulator is closing unexpectedly, there is a problem with your code. The LogCat is where the actual error messages are stored. Check there.

Note: Changing IDEs will not fix your problem.

I did a bit of Googling on this. Here is what I would try based on what I found. First, make sure the emulator's API level matches that of your project. Second, go to the AVD Manager, highlight the problem AVD, hit the start button, and select the appropriate option to Wipe User Data.

Hope this helps some.
