How to install DictionaryForMIDs on the Android SDK ?
« on: 17. November 2009, 20:09:04 »
Cause I do not yet have an Android device, I would like to see how DictionaryForMIDs looks on the Android SDK Emulator.

Well, simple question: how do I install DictionaryForMIDs on the Android SDK Emulator ? I understand that DictionayForMIDs can be downloaded from the Android Market. But how do I do this with the Android Emulator ?

I do use the 'platform 2.0' on my SDK.

Thanks ...
Gert

Hi Gert,

sorry, I totally forgot about putting the packaged file on SF... I'm on it now!

Of course you can always go the long way: check out the source, compile it and run it on the emulator ;)

Hi Gert,

here the instructions:
1.Download the latest version here
2.Extract the apk-file
3.Start the emulator
4.Run the following command in a console
Code: [Select]
adb install PATH_TO_EXTRACTED_FILE.apk where the adb command can be found in the SDK's tools directory.
5.DictionaryForMIDs should then appear in the list of applications.

If there are errors while installing dictionaries, you may need to create a virtual SD card before starting the emulator...

Good luck  :D

I think you misunderstood this thread: It's about installing the Android Emulator/SDK on a Windows PC, not on a mobile phone.

Not sure about the others on this forum, but I have no idea how to get Android running on a Windows mobile phone. Having multi boot sounds like a great idea. Please report back here if you find any solutions!

Achim,

that was just another posting from one of those 'spam users' - I now banned that 'optimus'-Account.
