I'm using the new VS Android Emulator with Android Studio:
It doesn't have Google Play Services installed... so I'm following this guide to install:
I've downloaded the proper Gapps file (in my case):
Now I've dragged and dropped the ZIP file onto the emulator... and it's just stalled at "copying file"... Is there anything else I need to be doing here in order to get Gapps installed? How long does this "install" usually take?
I was trying it out yesterday myself and had the same problem. Apparently, non of the drag and drop functionality worked. So this, is what I did to resolve the issue:
Pull from SD card, which will create a folder structure on the selected folder.
Push to SD card. This will take a little while, and copy the zip file to your emulator.
sdk\platform-toolsin your Android SDK location and run
adb connect <emulator ip>:5555You can find the emulator ip, from within the emulator, go to Settings -> About Phone -> Status and IP section.
adb shell. This will give you a prompt to the android emulator.
install_zip.sh /sdcard/Download/<flashablezip>.zipThis should begin the flashing process.
Hope this helps in resolving the issue.
