Hi,

I have just started with android.I have run my first project in eclipse and its running fine.
But the emulator is the default emulator. I'm not able to configure avd to create my desired emulator.
Please help!

Thanks

In Eclipse, under window menu -> Android SDK and AVD manager, by clicking on this you will get list of AVDs. And by selecting it and pressing EDIT you must be able to edit its all the settings like SD Card, resolution and even hardware also.

I can say only this much. You need to describe your problem in detail that what are you facing.

Thanks for the quick reply.
When I try to run the emulator through command prompt, it says 'emulator window was out of view and recentred'.

Can you please suggest me the possible reasons for this?
Has it anything to do with the target set in the avd conguration?

I am getting your problem but according to me the problem may be withing version mismatching between the package of your SDK (zip which you might have taken from developer site, extracted it and set path in eclipse, did it? ) and your SDK platform tools & SDK tools (which I generally download and update from eclipse itself).

I am giving you a link which gives better understanding for set up. Try to walk with that. Hope you will reach up to highway.
