Android's Virtual Device (AVD) doesn't start

    I just downloaded Android's SDK and it comes with a facility to create and start virtual devices (AVD). I successfully created an AVD, however it has been impossible to start it. When I try, the machine outputs the following message:


    invalid command-line parameter: Files.
    Hint: use '@foo' to launch a virtual device named 'foo'.
    please use -help for more information


    Since I'm trying to start the AVD from the Android SDK and AVD Manager interface, I don't understand what the above message means, and how to start the AVD anyway.

    Do you have any suggestion?

    Thanks,

    Sergio.

    You installed the Android SDK to a directory with a space in the path, most likely 'Program Files'. Delete it and reinstall it to the root of your drive. I use C:\Android.

    Will it work if I just move the folder to the place you are indicating or do I have to reinstall everything?

    Thanks!

    I'm honestly not sure. You can try it, worst case scenario something doesn't work and you just move it back and reinstall. Typically you can't move Windows installation folders, though.

    No problem. Enjoy programming for the Android platform. I just started and I love it.
