I was trying to get Android to run in VMware Player on a Windows 7 host system. I got pretty far. It was working after initial setup - I even had an internet connection. Then I powered the vitual machine off because I could not figure out how to do it otherwise. But then I could not get it properly started again. It loaded OK but after 3 seconds the start screen disappeard and all I had left was a black screen. Does anybody have experience with Andoid on VMware Player and is there a subforum for that. I know Android (as a user) because I own a Nexus 7 and I have experience with VMware Player. I use that for 6 virtual systems - but this one baffles me. Thanks for your input.
