Android Studio AVD emulator error

+3 Sonja Mijatovic · July 6, 2015
I installed Android Studio following tutorial instructions. When trying to launch default Nexus AVD in emulator I get this error messange:
Cannot launch AVD in emulator.
Output:
emulator: ERROR: x86 emulation currently requires hardware acceleration!
Please ensure Intel HAXM is properly installed and useable.
CPU acceleration status: HAX karnel module is not installed!

Of course, I did install Intel x86 Emulator Accelerator in Android SDK Manager but I can't find SDK on default location mentiond on some forums (C:\users\username\AppData\Local\Android\sdk).

Please help me start developing,
Thanks in advance :)

Hi folks!
I had the same error when I set up my Android Studio - After searching for the error, I had to 
go to my bios and turn on hardware virtualization.
I found a good thread for several solutions explained(the accelerator sdk is one of them) at Stack Overflow, here's the link:

I hope this helps you as well as it helped me!:)

I solved it by doing this.

1.Go to the virtual device manager.
2. Add a new virtual device.
3. Go with the default settings except that in CPU/ABI column.. Change it from Intel Atom (x86) to ARM(armeabi-v7a).

Let me if that solved your issue!!:)

What do you mean it doesn't launch, what happens when you click on the AVD icon?
