>> I'm having trouble running tests on the Android emulator from LiveCode on Mac. Sometimes I see it in the "Test Target" menu, sometimes I don't. This is on various versions of LiveCode from 5.3 onwards. I restart AVD, restart the emulator, restart LiveCode, reselect Android in Standalone Application Settings... I can't find the magic sequence that makes it come back. But sometimes it has come back.

Yes, when I can't make the emulator work I've been testing on hardware instead
(I just build into a folder served from my laptop, so I pull from the device
instead of pushing to it, though I have AirDroid and will give it a go to see
if it's any faster) - apart from being a little extra step, the main problem
is that I don't use an Android phone, so if I'm away from my desk just working
on my laptop, if I can't speak to the emulator then I don't have any way to test.
Thanks for responding - it's good to know I'm not the only one having this
problem - has anyone cracked it?
