Questions:

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.

How to&Answers:

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.

Answer:

The Android SDK tools are completely separate from Eclipse. You can simply download them from Android’s website and run the AVD Manager.

Answer:

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

<android_sdk_path>/platform-tools/
