As part of my testing work, I am currently working on using webdriver to test on Android. So I had to install Android Emulator on Windows 7. Below are the sequential steps and I hope it will ease some pain on getting Android emulator on your Windows 7 box.
Download the installer from http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html
  1. Install it to a location (like: C:\Program Files\Android)
  2. Launch “SDK Manager.exe”
  3. It will launch a “Android SDK and AVD Manager”. By default “Installed packages” will be highlighted. On the pop up “Choose Packages to Install”, there will be some packages selected already. Go ahead with the “Install”.
4.    Once it is done, select “Virtual Devices” to create one for you. Click on “New” and enter some name. Target as “Android 2.2 – API Level 8”. Select Size as “512” and “Built-in” to be “WVGA854” and click on “Create AVD”.
5. Once done select the Virtual device you created and click on Start. You can find the “Start” button on the right panel in the above shown image. Clicking “Start” will launch another pop-up, just say “Launch” and proceed.
