Android VM crashing on launch
After upgrading to Android 4.2 I started to encounter an issue where the emulator crashed upon launching which strangely only seemed to occur if I launched the avd/vm on a secondary screen the last time I tried to launch it.
After doing some poking about, I traced the issue down to the avd config file for the vm which you can get to using the below commands:
In the config file you might see the property window.x having some value such as 2054 which is where the emulator was last positioned on the x axis on the second screen. Change the value to something such as 600.
Save the config file, start Eclipse, and fire up your avd/vm and all should run well.
