Hello,

I have to work on an android application using visual studio. So I started by writing a simple "Hello World" application to print on the console.

It gives the following error.

After looking for "Cannot find AVD system path. Please define ANDROID_SDK_ROOT" on Google, I thought I may have to set up an environment variable. So I added thid to the Path list in System Environmental Variable "C:\Users\soume\.android\avd". However, the error has not changed.

Please suggest what is wrong and how to fix this issue.

Thanks in advance.
