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
