    I searched in the forums for an answer to this question but i didn't find one.. so my question is can anyone help me figure out why i am getting the message below when trying to run the emulator

    Name: test
    Path: C:\Users\Brandon\Downloads\.android\avd\test.avd
    Target: Android 1.5 (API level 3)
    Skin: HVGA

    c:\android-sdk-windows\android-sdk-windows\tools>emulator -avd test
    emulator: ERROR: unknown virtual device name: 'test'
    emulator: could not find virtual device named 'test'

    running winblows?

    Ok..
    from Linux point of view.
    I just run android script in the tools folders.
    it can also create avd and also run the emulators with out commands line

    I am confused.. I think you are saying that you run the android script from the tools folder and I believe thats what I have been trying to do.

    then you'll get a SDK / AVD manager.
    just go to virtual device and click on one of your avd then run it

    ok.
    did you try clicking on "new" in virtual device?
    before you run the emulator

    So I ended up changing from netbeans to eclipse and I am still getting the same error message

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

    does anyone know what I am doing wrong and how I can fix it?? I am soooo frustrated.. I've been trying to figure this out for 3 days. :confused:
