Emulator fails to Launch

1

I was using the emulator perfectly fine yesterday, but today I cannot open the emulator. I have read up on the android documentation and on other issues people have run into and I cannot find a solution. I have attempted to force the emulator to run through the terminal using both -gpu host and -gpu swiftshader_indirect and I was not successful. I have updated all SDK Platforms and SDK Tools with no success. I have deleted the emulator and installed a different emulator through the AVD manager to be certain the download was current. Here are also some of the trouble shooting commands I have tried with the error messages. I am not sure what to do now. If anyone has any advice, I would greatly appreciate it!

Here is what the Terminal shows:

emulator: WARNING: encryption is off init: Could not find wglGetExtensionsString! getGLES2ExtensionString: Could not find GLES 2.x config! Failed to obtain GLES 2.x extensions string! Could not initialize emulated framebuffer emulator: WARNING: load_config.cpp:52: Could not parse verified boot config: emulator: WARNING: load_config.cpp:54: 1:1: Invalid control characters encountered in text.

  1. Make sure your GPU drivers are up to date.

  2. Erase and re-download the emulator ($ANDROID_SDK_ROOT/emulator).

  3. Try software rendering: Go to Extended Controls > Settings > Advanced tab and change "OpenGL ES renderer (requires restart)" t o "Swiftshader".

Or, run emulator from command line with "-gpu swiftshader_indirect". 4. Please file an issue to https://issuetracker.google.com/i ssues?q=componentid:192727 and provide your complete CPU/GPU info plus OS and display setup.

And this is what the event log reports:

EDIT:

When I restarted my computer, I saw there was an update available for Android Studio, so I updated it accordingly. When I ran the main activity as I have done so previously with my preferred AVD selected the emulator failed to start. Then I attempted to run it through the terminal with both -gpu host and -gpu swiftshader_indirect commands and it still did not work.

SOLUTION TO MY ISSUE: 1. Restart computer. 2. Open Android Studio and run the emulator through the terminal using emulator -avd Pixel_2_API_29 -gpu host. 3. Now run the main activity.

It is beyond me why all of a sudden now this is the work around to run on the emulator when I have previously simply clicked run main activity with my preferred AVD and it would run without problems.

I hope this helps if anyone runs into this issue. I do not think this a complete solution, but I can live with this for the time being.
