HAXM won't install

HAXM won't install

I have an Intel i7 4770 processor running at 3.4 Ghz. I am running Windows 10 Pro. I have Hyper-V installed. I am trying to install the Intel Hardware Accelerated Execution Manager. In my bios I have Intel Virtualization Technology Enabled and Execute Disable Bit Enabled. Yet when I try to install HAXM I get the following error:


This computer does not support Intel Virtualization Technology (VT-x). HAXM cannot be installed. Please refer to the Intel HAXM documentation for more information.


What can I do to fix this? I cannot use Android Studio without it.

Hi,   Virtualization requires a combination of software and hardware to work properly.  There are two other forums that may have some insights for you regarding to Android support.:

Alright, so I did everything I could possibly find online, and nothing worked.

So I went to the Intel website, and I downloaded the HAXM installer that they provide (instead of using the one downloaded through Android Studio).

The installation actually went through with this installer and it was installed successfully. Then I open Android Studio, and the emulator finally loaded!

So, for anyone else having this problem, just download the installer directly from the Intel website.

Here's the link:
