How to run android on your Windows 7

After running MAC OS on a Windows 7 PC, I offer you a way by which you can test the android platform your computer.If you want to run latest version of Android OS on your computer then you can do this with the help of Android SDK. All you need to do is install a SDK on your computer and try the latest version of the OS right inside your Windows computer. SDK is also available for Mac OS X and Linux OS. This guide will show you how to install Android SDK on your computer and run the Gingerbread without any hassle.

Note: Download and install Java on your computer before downloading Android SDK.

First of all, go to this website and download the Windows version of the package. Click on to download the file.


You can directly download the file here.


After the file is downloaded. Extract the zip file. Open the folder and you’ll find SDK Manager.exe inside it. Double click on it to run it.


A black screen will appear followed by packages to choose. You need to choose those versions of Android which you want to test on your computer. For example,, I rejected many old versions of Android (Android 1.1 to Android 3.1). If you choose more than one version then it will take too much time to complete the installation process because all the files get downloaded one by one (for each version) from the internet. It is better to select only few versions. After selecting the versions, click “Install” button.


It will start installing all the selected versions of Android one by one, starting from the latest one. You can see the progress in the opened window.


Give the name to the virtual device. In the dropdown next to Target, select the Android platform (I selected Android 2.2). Choose the size of SD card (virtual card, no SD card required to run the virtual device). After selecting the proper options click on the “Create AVD button”.

After successfully creating the AVD, it will notify you.

To start the AVD (Android virtual device) just select the AVD and then click the highlighted “Start” button.


Keep the “Launch Options” as it is. Click on the “Launch” button to start the device.


Device will launch. You can see ANDROID written on the left side and mobile like buttons on the right. A bar next to ANDROID is blinking which means the device is booting.


After a few minutes your device will start and you can use android on your PC.

Have fun...  :)
