Android Virtual Machines not working

HI

I am really new to this so please bear with me

i have the android SDK installed and Eclips and all this works fine but when i try and run the VM to test it it does not work and says it can't find the VM

it is no a windows machine and my desktop is setup on a server so my VM's root directory is
\\(server)\desktop\(user)\.android\avd\

i have tryed doing the fixes on the android site to move the VM but every time i alter the system it puts it back to the orgnal folder

so my question is

is there a file some where on my windows PC that has this setting and there for can i reset it to sat c:\avd to see if it works there i ahve looked and can't find it my self as of yet

I had similar issues with the avds. At the end it turned out I had some letters in the path of the avd that are no good (I checked the file where the path is and saw that the characters were wrong).

Try launching the avd from the sdk manager, to see if it runs. If it does run, then the problem is elsewhere.

If you can not run the avd from the sdk manager, then you should try to install the Android sdk again and watch for those paths to not have funny letter.

every time i make the AVD it wants to put it on my mapped network drive and it wont change it even if i do it in command line it shows as on my mapped drive as we have our desktops as a central drive i will have to wait for google to change the installer so you can move the path unless  some knows where it is in the reg

You should check the files which get created to see if there are correct paths to the avd.
