Is it possible to run an Android emulator without setting up Eclipse. I’m working with a contractor that has provided me with the .apk file.I was hoping I could run it without setting up a whole testing environment.
There’s no relationship from Eclipse and Android emulator other than the launcher icon.
You can even run the emulator as a stand-alone application, there’s no even need for android SDK.
The Android SDK tools are completely separate from Eclipse. You can simply download them from Android’s website and run the AVD Manager.
If you’d like to install apk on emulator simply start emulator and type in console
adb install path/to/apk/file.apk
You can find adb tool in
