I have a VirtualBox VM on my computer, the VM is running Windows 7 64bit. I installed Android Studio on that VM. I only have the basic Hello World application. When I try to run AVD I get this message:
Intel HAXM is required to run this AVD. Android Emulator is
incompatible with Hyper-V.
Unfortunately, you cannot have Hyper-V running and use the emulator.
Here is hat you can do:
1) Start a command prompt as Administrator
2) Run the following command: C:\Windows\system32> bcdedit /set
3) Reboot your machine.
I tried running this command and restart multiple time, doesn’t change anything.
I also tried to do some port forwarding : http://paulsdevworld.blogspot.ca/2013/06/make-android-studio-work-with-androvm.html
I was unable to connect
No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.
I’ve check this question, I’m not having the same issue because OP has a android image directly in VirtualBox Test android app on Virtual Box from Android studio
Anyone knows a way to make this work or something that I could try?
Feel free to ask any question.
Is there any way to make this work in a VM?
Starting a bounty the answer doesn’t need to be with Virtual Box but has to be free of cost.
Read this post from virtual box as well and see if it applies to your situation please. 🙂
https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=69076. If this is the case I’m afraid that as you requested there would be no free option, as you may have to go for a software such as VMWare which is license based.
What you could otherwise do is not use Intel HAXM inside your existing VirtualBox. That is by using an Android image that does not need hardware acceleration. This is because it is not possible to run two different emulation stacks on your processor at the same time. So since you are already running Virtual Box it would be better to use an emulator that does not need hardware acceleration. You could refer this post: Can I run an emulator without HAXM in Android Studio?
if you like. Cheers
EDIT: phil did you try this? It would seem like the only viable option since VMWare isn’t free
The below process works if your system supports Intel Virtualization Technology (VT-x):
- Go to BIOS using F10 on Boot-up.
- Go to System Configuration/System Settings.
- Enable Virtualization Technology.
- Press F10 to Save and Exit.
- Reboot and your VT-x should be working.
I had the same issue, solved it by Installing the Intel Hardware Accelerated Execution Manager. Download it with the SDK Manager, it’s in Extras. After this, go to the folder
[Android SDK Root]
IntelHaxm.exe and install.
Here the link of the Intel Hardware Accelerated
Microsoft Windows,Mac OS* X, and Linux
You’ll get the following message if you don’t have virtualization enabled in your BIOS:
if you’ve already enabled VT-x in the BIOS setting, make sure that you have installed intel haxm that comes with android sdk. If you haven’t install it yet, you can open your SDK manager and install it from there or you can download it from this https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/extras/intel/addon/haxm-windows_r6_0_5.zip, unzip it to extras folder in your android sdk then install.
You can also try GenyMotion intead of AVD. It has better performance than AVD. It’s free if you use it non-commercially. GenyMotion uses Virtual Box, you can check if VB working properly.
If you are Not in situation to Enable
Intel-VT from BIOS menu, You should use Different processors for your VM, like ARM or 32 bit processors. cause Intel-VT let’s you use 64bit VMs.
