Android Emulator not starting up

So I've been having this major problem with Titanium Developer involving testing and launching code for Android. I have two computers that I installed Titanium Developer on, one with Windows XP and one with Windows 7. I have Android SDK and Eclipse installed on both as well, and configured. However, Titanium Developer will not launch the Android Emulator on neither computers when I try to test the "Kitchen Sink" app I've downloaded, or even when I try to launch an empty project, just to see if it works. Also, the versions of Android SDKs that I have installed does not show up at the bottom of "Run Emulator" tab, it just says "loading..". I've tried to be patient with it, but after 2 hours I realize this is not working.

Finally, every time I start up Titanium, it repeatedly downloads and install the 1.0 app update.

I like this product (of what I've seen of it), I would love to get these problems solved so I can start developing with it.

  • Try closing TiDev, deleting everything inside your ~/.android/avd/ directory, starting TiDev and then launching your app. It took 3 attempts to launch, but it's fine for me now.
