Problem deploying solution of android project on Visual Studio 2017

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.

AVD ManagerI am using Visual Studio Community Edition 2017 on Windows 10 Home Edition. I have opened the Android Virtual Device Manager and see 4 devices listed here. Do I delete all four of them?
