Hi there Nathan.

I had a similar problem, the sdk manager told my haxm was installed but it wasn't.

So I deleted it using the sdk manager, went in my BIOS/UEFI configuration and enabled vanderpool settings (if not under vanderpool, it may call intel VTx,  virtualization something... ) and back at the sdk manager installed the haxm again.

If you're running an AMD processor, I believe it comes enabled by default so it could be another problem.

For me it worked.

Best regards,

Good day

I am requesting help on this same issue.

I found that my computer is not compatible with Visualisation. What can I do to use the emulator?

Hi there, Andries!

To use it without the HAXM you should use an specific image of device's processor (ARM)... this thread in stack overflow seems to cover it good:


The step by step I use is something like:
To run ARM images (presumably you already installed them):
In AVD manager:
Create a new 'Virtual Device' OR 'Duplicate' one
Choose arm* .
Continue like nothing changed.

Best Regards,

I have similar problem and my solution is not possible because my pc has AMD processor and GPU and Virtual Machine Acceleration features needs system’s CPU supports one of the following virtualization extensions technologies:
Intel Virtualization Technology (VT, VT-x, vmx) extensions
AMD Virtualization (AMD-V, SVM) extensions (only supported for Linux).

Damn I have to install A Studio on Kubuntu hope it will work.

But Soon I am hopping that developers could develop for AMD GPUs also.

Hey Rekxs, you can always try to run in a no HAXM environment like Andries is trying! I believe the solution I just posted can solve your problems without the need to exchange your operational system of choice.

Best regards,
