I have my emulated android device running, its visible in “adb devices” and in expo I hit “open on android device” and the reactive native package manager in says “Opening on Android device” then nothing happens… and the emulator just stays there on the home screen / nothing installed.
Any idea whats going on or how to debug it as I see no logs anywhere? It works when I share to my actual phone.
Its the visual studio android emulator as I 100% have to run hyper-v given my work environment. Hyper-v means genymotion and the google android emulators are not viable as they require VirtualBox and are incompatible with hyper-v, so there is absolutely no way I can use them / this VS emulator is my only option.
The VS emulator didnt work at first, but adding the android studio adb version to path and a windows reg key to it seems to have worked, i.e. I can open a console and type adb devices and the virtual device is listed ok.
Expo seems to talk to the virtual device, if I open a 4.4 android and open on android device I get loads of error text in in the expo react native consol saying cant adb reverse which I later found out is supported in android 5.0.0 + devices.
So with an android 6 device that isnt an issue / expo seems to be using the same adb / is talking to the virtual device. Just nothing happens.
Whats frustrating is I can see no log out put, no time out, or error saying cant deploy etc I have nowhere to start to try and make this work. From what I read, people have made this work with the VS android emulator so its possible.
Any help would be most most appreciated, started a new job and this is making everything slow. Other team members have macs and everything just seems to work easily.
