Android. How from command line start emulator, deploy apk AND run apk?

Windows 10 (64 bit).

My emulator is locate on folder :

d:\Programs\Android\avd.android\avd\Nexus_4_4.avd\

My apk is locate on folder:

d:\Programs\Android\apk\my_apk.apk

I'm locate on folder D:\temp
If I want to start emulator from command line (prompt) I use the next command:

emulator -avd exus_4_4.avd


It's work fine. Emulator is success launched.

But I need more. Only from command line:


  1. Launch emulator

  2. Deploy d:\Programs\Android\apk\my_apk.apk to started emulator

  3. Run apk on emulator



How I can do this from command line?
