Uggh. Create a new Ice Cream Sandwich ( Android 4 ) emulator in AVD Manager, hit run and KABOOM! “emulator-arm.exe has stopped working”. Lovely.
Still haven’t figured out exactly what the problem is, but I do know disabling the camera “fixes” the problem. The most confusing part, creating an emulator that runs ICS, but uses a different screen resolution than WXGA and everything works just fine.
So, if you are trying to run the Android emulator using WXGA resolution and it keeps crashing, try disabling the camera. I’ll update if I ever figure out exactly what is causing the problem. I found this thread, which suggested disabling ATI Tray tools, however, my machine is nVidia based so that isn’t going to do it.
