creating AVD

I looked in to how to create a Android app and I followed it all the way till I had to access my virtual device manager and my AVD wasn't there and I manually created in one but wouldn't let me and popped up with an error in my console. Any idea what that means? Thank you!

I'm not sure I'm understanding you correctly, but can you answer two things?

First, does your android emulator start up at all?

Second, you mentioned something about an error... can you please copy and paste the details of that error? Thanks!

Hey sorry I am not very good at explaining myself yet. This is the error in red text in the console I get when I try to create my AVD

[2013-06-21 19:36:35 - SDK Manager] Error: Target location is not inside the SDK. [2013-06-21 19:36:35 - SDK Manager] Failed to set image path properties in the AVD folder.

Any idea what I should do to fix this? Thank you!

Check out this other forum post about this issue. That error is sometimes related to the path where the bundle is unzipped. You may want to try moving it somewhere else or using the alternative bundle linked in that other post.
