Hi I am running Windows 8 in VMWare Workstation 9 and I wanted to setup an android development environment, I installed Java the ADK and Android studio. When I create an AVD and try to start it it appears as a black screen with buttons pane. I think the problem is that I can't run an emulator within another emulator, but I just wanted to check in case anyone else has been successful.
The errors it shows are: Failed to create pbuf surface for FB 0x3004 emulator: WARNING: Could not initialize OpenglES emulation, using software renderer. extension WGL_ARB_make_current_read was not found extension WGL_EXT_swap_control was not found
I had difficulty searching for this because the results tend to be people trying to setup an android VM as a standalone, rather than running android development emulator in a Windows 8 VM like my setup.
