I was playing around with the Motorola MotoDev IDE, which is kind of a jazzier front-end to Eclipse, and it asks you on startup if you want the Android emulator to show up in an IDE window. I said yes. That makes the emulator show up in an Eclipse tab, like the Console, Outline, etc. After a while it became apparent that MotoDev wasn't sufficiently different than Eclipse to make it worth the install. So I got rid of it. This is on Mac OS X with Snow Leopard. Now when I start Eclipse and run any Android project, even Hello world, the Console shows the emulator installing and the APK installing, and the Intent starting. But no emulator window. I found a setting in Eclipse->Preferences->Android->Launch Settings that said -no-window for the emulator. MotoDev must have set that. That had to be it. I got rid of it and still no Emulator. So I got rid of Eclipse, the SDK, everything and did a full fresh install of everything. Still no emulator window. I can start the emulator with an AVD from the command line fine and I see it. But from Eclipse, nada.
