From one day to the next the android emulator stopped working..times out…I tried the usual fixes (kill adb.exe, delete existing adv's..) curious thing is I now have a replica .android folder within my existing .android folder…things seem now to be happening in there, and if I delete it, next app launch just recreates it…can anyone help
This will usually happen due to incorrect permissions, which can happen if you run Titanium as different users, for example your user and the administrator.
To resolve it, stop Titanium and any emulators, and delete the .android folder in your user profile, the common temp android directory (ie. in /tmp) for example, and the adb.log file in the temporary directory.
For good measure, delete everything inside the subdirectories of build/android in your project directory (so the contents of bin, src, lib etc).
Also, make sure that your android sdk path is configured correctly on Titanium Developer's "Edit Profile" screen. Mine is set as /opt/android-sdk. This directory is the one that contains the tools directory, which contains adb.exe etc
