Default Can't Creat an Android Virtual Device

I followed the instructions given on pages 11, 12, and 13 in the book for creating a virtual device. To run the virtual device I selected it and clicked on Start. But then I get an error m message saying invalid command line parameter This is fishy because I am not supplying any command line parameters. In the steps given in the book there is no place where one can enter a command line parameter.

Could a later version on the Android SDK than what the author used to write the book cause this problem.

What should I do to get a virtual device to run?

Default Reply to Can't create an Android Virtual device

Problem solved. Problem was caused by a space in the directory path for the Android SDK. Fixed problem by uninstalling the SDK and installing the SDK in a directory with out any spaces in the path name.

Searching the web produce the following information.

"When I try to launch my Android Virtual Device, I get the following error.

Hint: use '@foo' to launch a virtual device named 'foo'.
Please use -help for more information.

I have been using the emulator for months, and I just downloaded new updates from SDK/AVD Manager."

"This problem is caused by blank spaces in the path you setup in the Android SDK. The solution is that you should move the folder of the Android SDK to a place without spaces, in your case:




Conclusion this problem was caused by a bug in the latest version of the SDK.
