Install the Package

The ADK installer will create a root folder called /devapps if it does not already exist on your VM. Any apps you copy into this folder are loaded the next time the Simulator starts. This directory can be used for development and testing purposes. A Simulator Reset may be required before new apps show up in the dock. The /devapps root directory and its contents are untouched even if you remove the ADK package.
