Visual Studio 2015 Android Emulator

Leave a comment

Earlier this week, my business partner, Erik Renaud, has shared his recipe to launch from the command line one of the hyper-v Android emulator that Microsoft included with Visual Studio 2015 RC.

I agree with Erik that from all the Android emulator on the market, Microsoft has the fastest and most robust solution, especially when developing with Xamarin and Visual Studio.

Contrary to Erik, I only want to launch the Microsoft Emulator Manager…

… and from there select the emulator that I want to start.

Here is the command line:

“%PROGRAMFILES(X86)%\Microsoft Emulator Manager\1.0\emulatormgr.exe” /sku:Android
