emulator: ERROR: x86 emulation currently requires hardware acceleration! Please ensure Intel HAXM is properly installed and usable.  CPU acceleration status: HAX kernel module is not installed!

Please give me the easy solution..

I too had the same problem. tried the above recommendations. But it did not work out for me. I think this accelerator doesn't work in Windows 10 pro.

Make sure you have installed HAXM installer on your SDK Manager.


After you download it and make sure you run the setup located in: {SDK_FOLDER}\extras\intel\Hardware_Accelerated_Execution_Manager\intelhaxm.exe

Note: in Android Studio, the command "intelhaxm.exe" has been changed to "intelhaxm-android.exe"

If you get the error "VT not supported" during the installation disable Hyper-V on windows features. You can execute this command dism.exe /Online /Disable-Feature:Microsoft-Hyper-V. You will also need "Virtualization Technology" to be enabled on your BIOS
