.APK file help is required


If you have .APK file in your system and you want to open it in Android SDK Emulator then first you need to place that file on the following path manually by copy paste. 

: Android Workspaceandroid-sdk-windowstools. You need to search this path on your system that in which drive you have Android workspace.

Open Android platform which you are using such as Eclipse and start running Emulator then Open command prompt and make your prompt to the above path. Now enter a command:  adb install abc.apk (enter). Here abc is the file name.  This will execute successfully only when in the android-sdk-windowstools, AdbWinApi.dll(Application extension) and InstallAgent.bat (Windows batch file)  files are already saved and installed.  Keep in mind that your Emulator is not closed. 

Still, if you are not able to see an application icon in the menu of Emulator. You should update your emulation by going into eclipse and go to windows tab click it. Now click on Android SDK and AVD manager. A window appears. Edit AVD and change the target to the latest version of android such as 2.3.1 API Level-9 and saved it. Now reopen your emulator and run the command again.
