emulation – How to safely remove/uninstall Android Virtual Device .img files added by Visual Studio Emulator for Android – Stack Overflow

Me at [WayBack] emulation – How to safely remove/uninstall Android Virtual Device .img files added by Visual Studio Emulator for Android – Stack Overflow:

Since after uninstalling the “Visual Studio Emulator for Android” component, you cannot get to the “AVD Manager” any more, you have to manually delete this directory:

%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\VisualStudioEmulator

This works for both Visual Studio 2017 and Visual Studio 2015.

In addition, you might want to run “AppWiz.cpl“, then remove “Android SDK Tools”, which is also not automatically removed by the Visual Studio installer (at least not in Visual Studio 2015).

This will get rid of the multi-gigabyte folder %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Android\android-sdk\

If you still need Android emulation, read these:
