Download Google Android Emulator

Do you want to test drive Google Android without having to buy a phone? Google SDK package allows developers to see all android features and let them use the whole interface.

If you don’t want to be bothered by the complex Google SDK Package, then RedmondPie reports that Haseeb a member at XDA-Developers forum has managed to create an executable file by packaging and configuring the Google SDK. Which means that you can now use the complete emulator in a single-click without having to install Google SDK package.

All you have to do is extract the .rar archive, rename extracted folder to “Android-Emulator”, Download and Copy fixed exe files in it, and then finally run it. These steps are rather complicated and confusing. So instead of following these steps, I have provided the direct link to download Android Emulator, just extract the zip archive and run the executable file. That’s it.

  6. When I was looking at “Recommended for you” I laughed because one of them said “Search and download classic game console emulator ROMs for Andriod”. I laughed because your emulating a game through another emulator that emulating the android which would just destroy your cpu because of resource requirements.

  11. HAND PRA WAIST UP LOOSE HALF BACK DANCE KUDURO cANCA NOT NOWTHE PARTY STARTED THE HEAD AND MOVES BOB HARD …

  12. uggh this is just as annoying as the real android, is there anyway to use the phone emulator to play games as if it were a real android phone, i am addicted to a game called pocket empires and i lost my phone and i reallly want to play it. as well as talk to some good friends i have on there with the app called kik all i really need id the app called kik agggggg

  13. if any one wants to know to on the internet its easy go to options switch off airplane and go on 3g not wi-fi 

  14. 1. The Emulator does nothing than opening a DOS box for less than half a second.
    2. The description says to just run the .exe file. Did you not recognize that there are several .exe files? I tried each of them …

  15. already mentioned by Alvin but I see there is confusion… if you want to check your site on the internet, you have to go into settings and disable airplane mode… it’s turned on default…

  16. Will this emulator run on Windows 2000? When I run EMULATOR.EXE I get the error:
    The procedure entry point freeaddrinfo could not be located in the dynamic link library WS2_32.DLL.

  17. Hello

    Any idea how to sort this out?

  27. installed on my VMware Windows machine and it works. Turned off Airplane and I have access to the the Internet. Does anyone know if landscape (rotate) is possible?

  28. Hi, I found the answer myself. Instead of using localhost I use the IP address of my computer then it works. Thanks

  29. Hi, This is a good emulator. However I need to access my localhost url to test my website application. I disabled the Airplane mode it can access internet now but seems can not access my localhost website. Is it possible to access my localhost url? If it is possible then how can I do that?

    Thanks

  30. Nice package. Loaded and no issues other than it running Android 1.5. Any way to get it to run 2.1 or higher? Developing a system that needs that release.

  31. How to install Android market in the emulator? I need to install and view a certain application from the market but i cannot find the market application. Thanks in advance for the help.

  32. HI

    Help me please. I must finish my project.
    Thank you

  33. Hi
    I know that bluetooth is not supported on the Android emulator. I wanted to know if WIIFI is supported on the emulator?
    Thanks.

  34. Is it possible to download apps onto the emulator? i want to play a game on the emulator instead of my phone when im at home. it makes more sense to me. i dont feel like leaving my phone plugged in all the time.

  35. Hi, nice job of creating a simple installation. One thing though, I ran it from my desktop first, it worked great so moved the folder to a more permament location and now it won’t run, only if I put the folder back on the desktop. Tried unzipping new instance but get the same. Is there some reg entry or setting that needs ajdusting? Any way to get aroudn this?

    • is it possible to access localhost url ?, I tried to do so but I get “don’t find” message.
      I want to test mobile version rendering of my website before sending it to a network.
      Otherwise, the emulator is really Great !
      Thank you very much 🙂

    • same question from me as well.

      How we will check localhost mobile site for testing purpose?

      Can any one help me please?

      Thanks,

      Amol

    • this is the only useful comment i have read among many others. thank you for the info Api. emulator and installer works just fine.

  36. Settings\Wireless controls and Airplane mode.Click the dialog box to deactivate the Airplane mode.And error message.3G +Mobile Networking!!

  37. Hi,

    I am flash/flex developer, I want to deploy my flash application on android 2.1 or 2.2. This emulator is nice and easy to install, But when i deploy my flash app using ADOBE Air it throws an error saying

    D:\My\Utilities\Air\For Android>adb -e install -r Runtime_Emulator_Froyo_20100802.apk
    897 KB/s (0 bytes in 6402284.006s)
    pkg: /data/local/tmp/Runtime_Emulator_Froyo_20100802.apk
    Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_OLDER_SDK]

    • Have you gone to the Android Market, installed ADOBE AIR on the emulator? That is the only way an Adobe AIR app will work in the emulator – having installed on you host device does, well it gives that error.

  38. Can I access Android Markey from the emulator?
    Nice emulator – Internet is working great after turning off airplane mode.
    BUT I would like to see how Android Market is – is that done from the web-browser or a special application or …=

  39. I just love how people say how they were successful at doing something while leaving the rest of us in a lurch as to how the successfully did it. Hooray for them. What about the rest of us?

    Here’s how to start browsing the internet:

    1) Hit the “house” icon
    2) Hit the small grey tab at the bottom
    3) Go to “settings”
    4) “Wireless Controls”
    5) Uncheck “Airplane Mode”
    6) Hit the “house” icon
    7) hit the browser icon

    You are now ready to test a mobile website in android.

  40. Airplane mode successfully turned off. It gives a 3G indicator as normal and connects to Google (Via my pc’s connection).
    The emulator is extremely demanding on system resources which makes it run very slowly. but other than that it is fun to use.

    I personally am not a developer so i downloaded this just to have a go as i am a huge Android fan.

    I currently use the HTC Desire running android 2.1.

    Thanks for sharing this cool program.

  41. Hmm, d/l link seems to longer work. 🙁

    Tried a half-dozen times over two days, and it always downloads about 50MB and then dies saying the source file could not be read.

  42. this thing is awesome. I just ordered order a 7″ tablet off ebay and wanted to start to learn how to use it and find apps while i wait for it to arrive. It works fine but slow. You need to turn on wifi in the settings to access the internet. I also downloaded a program called apkinstaller1.01. With that installed on my computer i can install the apk files and try them out.

  43. I am unable to browse internet on the emulator. It does not display even google.com site. Any idea what is missing?

    • standard way would be to connect to the instance with ADB, or come out of airplane mode, and go to the appropriate url – maybe email to self and pickup that way?

  44. Software for the emulator wont boot up. The console app gives me an error saying

    emulator: ERROR: unexpected qemud char. channel close

    whats goin on?

  45. Wait for it. Boot-up takes time. So just wait for the A N D R O I D_ to disappear and Android starting.

  46. You can switch to normal mode by just turning airplane mode off by going into Settings. After you switch airplane mode off, you should be able to access the internet.

    • I have done as you have written.
      The answers were two for different applications.
      1. Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_OLDER_SDK] for com.androidvendigAAD.apk and others.
      2. Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_SHARED_LIBRARY]
      What is wrong?

    • Hello, I didn’t tried it, but do this: create a simple webserver on the host computer, then create an html page with links to the apk you want to install. After this, use the emulator browser to navigate the internet and go to you personal server, then to the html page and click the link to the APK. The browser will request if you want to install, then do it.

    • Hi,
      My computer is connected to the internet but the emulator does not…
      How can I connect the Emulator to the Internet and than install an app on it?
      Thanks again 🙂
