Can't Install Intel HAXM

0 Ronald Sahagun · May 19, 2015
I was following Bucky's 4th video on the Android App Development for Beginners, and I was trying to install Intel HAXM. I did as he said, installing it from the SDK Manager. It didn't work when I tried running AVD Manager, so I looked at the comments and saw that I had to go to the SDK folder and install an .exe file, intelhaxm-android. But when I opened it, I got this:


What should I do now?

@Ronald Sahagun I tried that with my old prestigio phone, but as i read on the internet you just enable developer mode and connect it with usb, and it will recognize it as a "device" and you just basiclly select it

@Silard Kovac I'll try your solution when I have the time, I'm very busy at the moment. BTW, what are the steps if I want to use my phone to test the program?

Hmm ... do you enable the debugging mode on your android device? when u try to run you app, just select your device to deploy it.

OK so my AMD A10 laptop  won't run the HAXM (or the emulator) since it doesn't have VT-x or AMD-v technology.... or am I mistaken?

What about configuring a Virtual Machine to run Android Studio and configure it with VT-x so the HAXM can be installed so I can run the emulator?
0 Steve Clauter · May 27, 2015
@Mark Tan, YES it looks like my fancy laptop does NOT support VT-x! So....then found Sam Kuzio's post on utilizing the Genymotion's virtual machine plug-in option so stay tuned I'll let you know how that works out.

In other bad news, I still cannot install the Google USB driver on my Win8.1 system. Arggg! One problem after another but I CAN hook up my Android tablet and transfer files so I know the USB port CAN work. Anyone know how to get the Google USB Drive in Android Studio to work with Win8.1? Any ideas are most welcome!

Here is a more simple solution(it worked for me not sure if it will work for you)
Create a new device
Check the Nexus 6
and go onto the top android ... the armeabi-v7a 
this should work, let me know if it worked!

if u used ur phone as an emulator ... i don't think need HAXM ... that is for the virtual emulator.

You definitely don't need the virtual emulator to build the app and deploy at play store. 

Virtual emulator is easier for us to constantly test the app in the computer, but when come to some function like GPS or camera ... we also need to use the real devices to do testing ... so ... if you use ur phone to test, just go ahead. :)

@mark tan not sure if i understand your answer. im pretty new to all this. Can i use my phone as a emulator, or do i need this virtual emulator to build a app for play store?
