Hello.,...

Loaded Android Studio with no problem.  Tried running a simple app and get this error as it relates to the emulator.  
Basically, the emulator won't work.  Others have installed with no issue.  What am I missing.


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!

You have to install it! from the extras directory

from the installation manual
"The SDK Manager will download the installer to the "extras" directory, under the main SDK directory. Even though the SDK manager says "Installed" it actually means that the Intel HAXM executable was downloaded. You will still need to run the installer from the "extras" directory to finish installation.

Extract the installer inside the "extras" directory and follow the installation instructions for your platform."

Hi  bobnields,

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

See attached screen  shot of SDK Manager.

It was installed.   But it is still not working.

I think there is much more going on that is preventing this from working.
