Error launching Android Emulator: Argument for @NotNull parameter 'abiType'


I'm developing a .NET Maui application on macOS with Rider, and when I try to launch the Android Emulator, with none loaded yet, I have this error:


Argument for @NotNull parameter 'abiType' of com/android/tools/idea/avdmanager/AvdManagerConnection$SystemImageUpdateDependency.updateRequired must not be null


But if the emulator is already launched, it works flawlessly.

How can I solve it?

I hope it helps.



Hello Juan Francisco ,

Thank you for your update. 

in the previous build, we have had issues with the Android studio plugin. Could you please try bugfix build and let me know if that works for you now? 


Hi Anna Morozyuk,

I'm trying Rider 2024.1.1, and it seems to work flawlessly now.

Thank you very much.
