Description softlion 2017-08-24 08:28:57 UTC
I created and launched an android 8 AVD created from Android Studio.
But this simulator does not appear in the drop down list of available simulators in Visual Studio (2017 15.3.x).
It does not appear on the 'unsupported devices' submenu too.

'adb devices' correctly returns the running avd:

C:\> adb devices
List of devices attached
emulator-5554   device

C:\> adb shell
uname -a
Linux localhost 3.18.48+ #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Apr 19 00:58:20 UTC 2017 i686
