I had the very same problem to begin with! There are three things that must happen in order for the project to launch! 1) You must have the correct packages installed in the Android SDK Manager. 2) The project build must be performed in the same build version (API) or one which is backward compatible. 3) The device you are trying to emulate must share the properties of the first two items mentioned. I spent two evenings trying to "iron out" a variety of problems in getting Eclipse, Android Studio and Genymotion working in harmony!
