Yeah if you are on windows, this happens. The ADB server runs outside of eclipse or they are not tightly related.

If on windows, do this. ---- Close the Eclipse if running --- Go to the Android SDK platform-tools directory in Command Prompt --- type adb kill-server (Eclipse should be closed before issuing these commands) --- then type adb start-server.

This works for me. if the adb is in the path you can just run it without going to the android SDK and I think it is by default. Worth a shot before navigating there first.

On linux just do a grep for adb. ps -ef | grep adb If you don't see a process, start it, if you do see one kill it and restart it. sudo kill PID_NUMBER

Let me know if this helps of if you have other questions or are confused even more lol


A big thanks hey it worked Another qstn i cant view my messages in my inbox but everything else in the Ribbit app i think its working just fine
