    How to import .apk Apps in Eclipse?



    ive gone through the steps, when i try to create the AVD it says error failed to create the SD card, anyone able to help me?

  • Moraka

    not interesting

  • androidfan

    Yeah, these steps are grueling. Now you can just download YouWave Android software from site. The software let you easily run Android apps on your Windows-based PC. And it run very fast. Highly recommended.


  • I’d love to know how to do that too.

  • KP

    I have the AVD started. I have .apk files available on my disk.
    How do I get the AVD to load these apps so I can run them on the emulator?

  • Now 2.3 Gingerbread is out i am going to see if it still works and it should…

  • kingofpudding

  • Menime

  • thx 4 sharing

  • Ff

    you don’t have enough space on your hdd (local disc c:) you should have like 3 gb free to create a virtual device

  • Hi, i have written a C++ MFC application which facilitates user to launch two avds and then user can browse an .apk file through my application and my app load that .apk file to both emulators…
    Now my objective is that when user test that android application (.apk file) on one avd then its replica should be viewable to user in the second avd (which my application would do…)
    Ofcourse i need to connect two avds…Any ideas?

  • LtDkAngel

    only one problem it’s 2 slow how can i make it faster

  • x3mjp3x

    Yeah, this part bugged me too. If you have a account, you can drag the APK file you want to install into a Dropbox folder, then when you’re inside the Android homescreen, use it’s web browser to navigate to your Dropbox account, then you can down the APK from there, then install it like you do on your phone

  • Asdf

    Thanks for your reply. I figured out I had only 4mb free on the disk form strange reasons I wasn’t expecting this, that helped ;-)

    Youwave is much much easier
    and it runs Android 2.2 fine
    Uninstall Oracle VirtualBox
    before using youwave
