3. Notice that the app is installed on the device but is not automatically opened
4. Check the console

Expected result: the app is installed and automatically opened on the device
Actual result: the app is installed but not opened; error thrown:
"CommandInvokationFailure: Unable to forward network traffic to device. Please make sure the Android SDK is installed and is properly configured in the Editor. See the Console for more details.
/home/unityqa/Android/Sdk/platform-tools/adb -s "efd3a563" forward "tcp:34999" ""
