Thread: Emulator and Windows update

    Emulator and Windows update

    I use Leapdroid Android emulator constantly throughout the day but today it won't load. Windows had a massive update the other day and before bed last night I installed it. This morning, the emulator will not start. I tried to uninstall it and it says that the uninstall file cannot be found. Anyone else use this program or similar one, have this happen after Windows update?

    I need this program to work.

    Roll back / system restore to a date before last update. If it was just 1 update, you'll know exactly what whacked the emulator. That update will show up again in Win Update, right click it, select "hide".
    Many of these emulators have been abandoned and no longer get updated. A conflict can occur when updating Windows.

    Revo Uninstaller (free) is great for removing everything that a normal uninstaller can't. Take care what box you check when removing remnants.

    Don't install "Preview of Quality" updates. They are test updates for those that will be released the next month.
    The "Preview" updates might cause glitches that MS will discover and correct, then next month the tested and fixed updates will be released.
