Running Android applications

To run an Android application in the Genymotion plugin for Eclipse, you first need to make sure that your virtual device is connected to the ADB tool. To do so, please refer to section ADB. Then follow the steps below:

  1. Click Genymotion plugin button.
  2. Select the virtual device you want to use and click Start.
  3. Minimize the Genymotion window.
  4. Right-click on your application project and select Run as Android application.
    The Android Device Chooser window opens.

After a reboot or an unexpected halt of a virtual device, its name in the Android Device Chooser window may become irrelevant. Close and reopen the plugin to solve this.

While the Genymotion plugin window is open, errors are displayed in the Eclipse console.
