I follow the agent instillation process as mentioned in site...

1. unzip android bundle zip with eclipse

2. add aspectj plugin 

3. import Demo1 sample project in to eclipse

4. add agent jar file in aspectj class path

5. then run emulator

6. compile the project and no errors in compilation

7. run the application, on emulator I can see app with login screen

8. Run monkey talk ide

9. Create a test project with script

10. Select 1st option from drop down list of Android Emulator/Tethred device

Now I am getting bellow errors on monkeytalk ide and not able to connect with my app emulator: 

An internal error occurred during: "MonkeyTalk".
Error starting adb:

Hi Amit,

Please check your Android ADB path which needs to be set in MonkeyTalk -> this can be achieved by going into Help->Preferences->MonkeyTalk Preferences -> there check for the Correct ADB path for Android like for example -> /Users/gorillalogic/Downloads/adt-bundle-mac-x86_64-20130514/sdk - u need to provide the path till the platform tools of ADB & also check whether the adb in your system is working properly or not , this is not the monkeytalk issue , where all the above steps which you have mentioned is right u r doing ...try this & let me know..
