Hi.

I have Android-Eclipse installed. I created a Virtual Device (1280x800 screen resolution, 512MB RAM, 8GB internal memory) and when I try to run this virtual device on Android simulator it doesn't start. The initial "Android" screen remains forever.

How can I solve this?

Thank you.

You may open LogCat view in Eclipse to see if anything causes it to hang.

BTW, how fast is your machine (e.g. CPU, memory) for running the AVD? Too slow machine (e.g. my P4 2GB RAM) may not work.

Thanks for your answer.

I have a Quad Core with 8GB RAM. Also I have waited for an entire hour to let virtual device start... so I don't think it is a too slow machine problem.

I'm attaching the starting of LogCat (this time I have closed the simulator just some seconds after starting it as I have seen there are some errors on somecat). However I don't understand the error messages... can you help me?

latest Android:
if you try to run with the latest Android 4.2 SDK. Simply deactivate(activate if not) the checkbox "Use Host GPU" within the settings of the virtual device

try ti resave the configuration:
In eclipse > Android SDK and AVD Manager, select your AVD Name and click Edit ...
Click Edit AVD ( resaves your settings )
select your AVD Name and Click Start...

you can also try to:
check if it is working with other versions of Android

tip:
if you enable snapshots, once you get it started and saved . It  should be more faster next time you run.

hope it helps
