How to install apk files on my android emulator with Eclipse?
I have eclipse and ADT and android SDK installed and I want to test apk files on my emulator.
I followed guides from stackoverflow, like this: How do I Install .apk files in the android emulator?
but these guides doesnt works a this point: I dont know where i have to put the APK file. For example, this command:
adb -s emulator-5554 install something.apk
It fails because can't find my apk file. Where i have to put it?
You can put it anywhere on your system, just specify the path as part of your command line:
C:\android-sdk\platform-tools> adb -s emulator-5554 install C:\Users\Me\Desktop\myapp.apk
Or, change into the directory your APK is in first, then run your command:
C:\> cd %USERPROFILE%\Desktop C:\Users\Me\Desktop> adb -s emulator-5554 install myapp.apk
Note: The above assumes you're on Windows, substitute UNIX-style paths if you're on Linux or Mac OSX.
Add these lines to your path variable
C:\............\Android\android-sdk C:\............\Android\android-sdk\tools C:\............\Android\android-sdk\plateform-tools
Run your emulator by typing the following command on command prompt
Run the another command prompt window and type the following command
adb -install ......path of apk file......./Appname.apk
You can start the command console and type
If the emulator is already running.
adb install <filepath/filename.apk>
if the file is in same directory, else specify the path of the filename.
