Problem :

I had tried to run the Hello World application in the Android Studio. But I got the following error:

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!

Can anyone tell me what can I do to fix the above error?

Solution :

Install your Intel x86 Emulator Accelerator by using the Android SDK Manager

If you have the Android Studio installed then you can start the SDK manager via the Tools -> Android -> SDK Manager. Your Android SDK Manager does not actually install the HAXM, it simply downloads it. In the top of your Android SDK manager window you can find that where is the installer is located on your PC.

Please open your subfolder extras\intel\Hardware_Accelerated_Execution_Manager, and run your installer manually as: intelhaxm-android.exe.

Now to use your intel HAXM, you need to have the CPU with virtualization support:

Before even attempting to use such a type of acceleration, you must first determine that if your development system’s CPU is supporting one of the below virtualization extensions technologies:

· Intel Virtualization Technology (VT, VT-x and vmx) extensions

· AMD Virtualization (AMD-V and SVM) extensions (Only supported for the Linux)

If the CPU does not have the virtualization support, you should use the ARM emulator instead.

Usage of AVD manager of Andriod can be a headache for some windows users when they try to set up an emulator with an x86 Andriod image for any target API level. To avoid this error, we have to ensure that we have Intel HAXM for Andriod installed on our machines.


  • For solving this error, start the Andriod SDK Manager which is located in Andriod\sdk and verify in Extras option if you already have the Intel x*6 emulator accelerator installed on your machine.
  • In case if you don’t have to select the “Intel x86 Emulator Accelerator (HAXM installer) and click to install the packages to proceed with the download and the “installation”. Once the manager has finished installation, proceed to start again the emulation of your device using the AVD manager.
  • If the problem still exists, that means the Andriod SDK manager does not install automatically the emulator accelerator, therefore you need to start the installation manually.
  • The manager should download the HAXM installer without any problem, so you need to locate the downloaded installer in the Andriod SDK folder.
  • Proceed to execute the installer in administration mode.
  • If your processor does not support the accelerated execution, then you can’t proceed with the emulation with an Intel Atom x86 image.
  • After installation start your emulator again and the emulator should now start without any problem.


The memory reservation settings can be changed by running the installer again.
