I can create a hellow world with eclipse/ android sdk.

Now I created virtual  android devices for  android 2.2 and 4.03.

q1) what are the limits to sd card or anything because my hello world app on 4.03 android AVD crashed win7 but the  2.2 AVD woked fine.

q2)I also get prmopted to enter password and user name all the time. is there any setting to stop this prompting me all the time?
. In preferences I have manual setting for proxy and at home I turn this off to native.

what you mean by limits on sd card? did you specif its size ?

At waht point does it ask you user and password?

Did not crash anything for me with 4.0.3 and does not ask for user/password...

i get asked for username and password when i open the project. The app always needs to know where the internet is because the emulator sems connected to internet.

my AVD 4.03 gives me an error but my AVD 2.2 works fine.

I did not specify and SD card at all; just left this position blank.
Maybe you allocated too much ?

The above error I get for android 4.03 on win7, as the other AVD work so far.
My computer doesnt crash but I get this problem now

I dont know the solution to this.

so where you specifued the proxy for emulator, can you do it like that:

http://<username>:<password>@<server>:<port>

the link didnt work.


this worked below .


"Try changing the ADB connection timeout. I think it defaults that to 5000ms and I changed mine to 10000ms to get rid of that problem. If you are in Eclipse, you can do this by going through Window -> Preferences and then it is in DDMS under Android."

 the hello world on the emulator only appeared briefly.
how do i get the hello world to appear after it goes?

if that link didn't work - I think you simply have intermittenet network working and that may account for a lot of your problems.
This link works absolutely without any problems for me alal the time:
