HD 7" emulator doesn't show Kindle Fire user interface

I updated to version 3 of the Kindle Fire HD 7" SDK Add-on and created a new AVD per Amazon's instructions. When I launch the emulator, it displays "Android" instead of "Kindle Fire" and then displays non-Kindle soft keys and arrangement of app icons. The previous version of this add-on seemed to work fine. Is anyone else having this problem?

Why am I seeing an Android environment instead of a Kindle environment with the latest HD 7" add-on?

I think the problem may be that when I created the avd for HD7, there is no skin called out in the resulting config.ini file. I've tried creating a new avd but that doesn't seem to help. I don't know what skin should be used.

Hi , As you mentioned above, i have updated my KF HD7 to version 3 and created a new AVD. After launching the emulator it is showing as "kindleFire" and displaying kindle fire soft key elements only. Under Skin option in emulator there are two options 1.)Built in 2.)Resolution. You can choose the settings as per your requirement. Make sure Target in emulator is Kindle Fire HD 7(Amazon) - API Level 15. Please delete your old KF HD7 emulator and create new emulator once. If you face any issues, please let us know the settings of emulator.
