Quick Tip: Installing AIR Runtime To Android Emulator

After I have installed Android SDK on a new machine, I have almost forgotten the steps necessary to run AIR application on Android emulator. There has been some changes within android sdk e.g. adb.exe is no longer located in “tools” dir but rather in “platform-tools”, to create a new emulator you can use SDKManager.exe… and to install AIR runtime on Android emulator, you can take .apk file located in AIR SDK (airsdk/runtimes/air/android/emulator/Runtime.apk) and install it via…

adb install Runtime.apk

… ir if you have multiple emulators or devices active

adb -s %emulator-1234% install Runtime.apk

Where to go from here:
