Android Emulator Google Maps issues

Hello,

I am working with the latest Android SDK (ie, API 19 KitKat) and the Eclipse IDE.
I have followed instructions and import the Sample project that can be found under:

C:\android-sdk\extras\google\google-play-services\libproject\google-play-services-lib

and

C:\android-sdk\extras\google\samples\maps

I can successfully build, deploy and launch the Sample Maps project to an android emulator. However, when I want to RENDER a map, I get the following message:

"Google Play services out of date. Requires 4030500 but found 2012110"

It is suggested to install the following 2 APK files on the emulator using ADB :
com.android.vending.apk
com.google.android.gms-1.apk

However, doing so, I get the following message:
Failure [INSTALL_FAIL_ALREADY_EXISTS]

Any suggestions on how I can tweek my emulator to render Google Maps v2 ?

Hi ptreves,

At the moment, referencing the Google Android Map API v2 you can't run Google Maps v2 on the Android emulator; you must use a device for your tests.

Thanks & Regards,
