Kindle Fire Device Definitions Installed but not Available in AVD Manager

I have installed every item in every API under ADK Manager. This includes all of the Kindle Fire images. When I open AVD and try to create a new device, the Kindle devices are not listed.

have you tried using the amazonavd.exe? look in this directory: sdk/extras/amazon/AVDLauncherMacOSX/ - im on a mac, I'm assuming it is similar on a windows machine

I have exact same problem. I looked in folder /extras but there was no sub-folder called amazon and a search for amazonavd.exe didn't find anything. So I still cannot see any kindle device definitions when I launch the AVD Manager and I've installed everything (including Kindle Fire stuff) in SDK Manager Can anyone help? Thanks

Hi, You need to install Kindle Fire Device and Emulator Dependencies through Android SDK Manager to get the Kindle emulators in your PC. https://developer.amazon.com/public/resources/development-tools/ide-tools/tech-docs/01-setting-up-your-development-environment#Installing%20Kindle%20Fire%20Device%20and%20Emulator%20Dependencies

Hi Thanks for that - I'd been through that page many times and thought I had installed everything, but I'd missed the [b]extras[/b] at the bottom of the list - now I've installed them the AVDManager works with Amazon devices. Thanks for the heads up
