Genymotion problem

I got everything set up in Genymotion, started up a player, went to expo and selected the Android device but get only this error

Couldn’t start project on Android: could not install smartsocket listener: Address already in use
ADB server didn’t ACK

  • failed to start daemon *
    error: cannot connect to daemon

Any ideas how to get this working? Thanks

Have you turned on networking for you device in Genymotion?

I saw the same / similar error as you, and networking was the problem in my case.

All the best


Thanks…where do you turn on networking for the device in Genymotion? I don’t see that on the general setting for Genymotion nor on the settings for the specific device I’m trying to use…any ideas?

Have you also followed these instructions?

Yes, precisely those instructions, using Option 2 and then Step 2.

hey! I just want to share that I solve this same problem thanks to the analysis of this guy . I had an old adb version that was the one that was being executed and was different from the version from the one installed by android studio, as the guy said may be the source of the problem is that there are different version of adb running and the one that gets executed is not the right one, and also has the port taken.

  • Delete genymotion and virtualbox.
  • Remove any unremoved files in folders like AppData and Program Files.
  • Restart.
  • Install Genymotion .
  • Install VirtualBox latest.
  • Run Genymotion as admin, just in case.

Any one have other suggestion?
