Launching AVD manager

0 William Njati · October 15, 2015
Hi guys! I tried loading the AVD manager but encountered some problems. it says
"Cannot launch AVD in emulator.
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"
what should I do to fix this?

There are different AVDs, Those that use x86 and those that don't.
If you have  and Intel processor that supports HAXM then you can use the AVDs that use x86 system images.
Click the device you want to use in AVD manager and click the  edit icon.
   the second line down will confirm if the device is using an x86 system image.

If  you don't have and Intel processor you will need to clone the device and modify it so it has a non x86 system image.

If you do then here is my "canned" answer.

1. You need to have an Intel chip set that supports HAXM.

2. You have to turn it on in your BIOS

3. You need to download AND install HAXM in your SDK manager.

I found this link and followed instructions for installing using Studio >  Tools > Android> SDK Manager
