Emulator for Android - very slow creating new profile

    Question

  • I am on Windows 10 Enterprise with VS 2015 Enterprise. I was trying to create a new device profile and it seemed to get stuck downloading the image.  I found the log file for the emulator and download is going very slow for some reason.

    I have tried this from work and home to make sure not a network issue and was slow at both places.  Any ideas?

  • Hi ILoveSoccer,

    Thank you for your post.

    According to version: 1.1.622.2, you were trying to install Visual Studio Emulator for Android (VS 2015 RTM).

    How about manually install it from the following link:

    https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/74e85e34-46ea-4188-9fef-55efb815534f

    I did a test to install it from the link on my side, please see:

    Besides, you may go to Control Panel >Programs >Programs and Features, select Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 and click on 'Modify', check if you have already installed these Android NDK:

    If the slow downloading still persists, please use http://aka.ms/vscollect   to gather the installation logs. After using it, you will find vslogs.zip from %temp% folder,
    Please upload the file to https://onedrive.live.com/   and share the link with us, I will check if there is anything that blocks your Emulator installing.

    Best Regards,
