Did you install the package Bucky tells you to at the beginning of video 4?

If you did and it still doesn't work, you have to run the file:

It may stop prematurely for 2 reasons:

1. VT not supported

For this, you have to disable Hyper-V. To do this, run command prompt as administrator and execute:
dism.exe /Online /Disable-Feature:Microsoft-Hyper-V

2. Virtualization Technology

For this, you need to enable virtualization technology on your BIOS.

Hey Sai,

This is actually covered in the YouTube-Tutorial "Android App Development for Beginners - 2 - Installing Android Studio" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEsDwzjPJ5c) towards the end. 

The error tells you that the Intel HAXM module isn't installed. What you'll need to do is start the Standalone SDK Manager, then scroll all the way down to "Extras", select "Intel x86 Emulator Accelerator (HAXM Installer)", and install that one.


Hope that helped.
