I’m not sure which update exactly broke it, but recently I got this when trying to launch the Android Emulator from the CLI:
$ emulator -list-avds Nexus_5X_API_25 $ emulator -avd Nexus_5X_API_25 :ERROR:./android/qt/qt_setup.cpp:28:Qt library not found at ../emulator/lib64/qt/lib Could not launch '../emulator/qemu/darwin-x86_64/qemu-system-i386': No such file or directory
Apparently there’s some relative path linking happening, which of course fails when running the
emulator command from a project directory.
The fix is to run the
emulator command from the directory in which it resides. Some command combinations later, this is the result (with
Nexus_5X_API_25 being the name of the created virtual device):
cd $(dirname $(which emulator)) && ./emulator -avd Nexus_5X_API_25
UPDATE 2017-11-28: As mentioned by Piotr in the comments below, another way to fix it, is to include the path of the
emulator binary in your
$PATH environment variable.
If installed correctly, you will most likely find some references
to $ANDROID_HOME in your
.bash_profile. Below that block, add this line to it:

This bug should be fixed in the next update of the build tools: https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/37137213
This but is still not fixed in the current latest version of the build tools as of 2017-07-31. However you can update the ./platforms/android/cordova/lib/emulator.js file by adding the ‘cwd’ option (Change Working Directory) with the path of the android emulator executable file.

The last line solves this problem for me.
Thanks for this suggestion. It indeed works. I have updated the post with the information you’ve provided here.
Thanks @Piotr, this worked for me.

You will find “SDK Tools” on the right .
Make sure the option–“Android Emulator” has been installed already, then choose it and Apply it.
I’m on MacOs. My Android Emulator was working till today. I now have the same qt lib error as you.
I have added the line :
to my .bash_profile.
It fixes this issue but I then have another issue:
emulator -avd Nexus_5X_API_23_2
createImpl: failed to create context (EGL_NO_CONTEXT result)
By chance, do you know this issue?
