    I am getting an error when attempting to start an emulated device from AVD.

    java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to create Debug Bridge: Unable to start adb server: error: protocol fault (couldn't read status): No error
    'C:\Android\Sdk\platform-tools\adb.exe start-server' failed -- run manually if necessary

    Some suggestions I've received from the community so far:
    1. Running adb start-server command manually
    2. Reinstalling platform-tools both standalone and from SDK manager
    3. Reinstalling Android Studio
    4. Reinstalling Java
    5. Restarting computer

    None of these options seem to be solving my problem. I've tried disabling my Firewall and adding inbound rules for the executable and port that adb runs on, but still no luck.

    Does anyone have any idea on what I can do to resolve this issue? I'm a little tired right now so if you need any additional information please let me know.
