HAXM - Hardware Accelerated Execution Manager

This section describes what is HAXM (Hardware Accelerated Execution Manager) and how to intall it. HAXM requires Virtualization Technology (VT) to be enabled in the BIOS setup.

What Is HAXM (Hardware Accelerated Execution Manager)? HAXM is an Intel technology that reserves a portion of RAM to be used exclusively for specific programs like Android emulators. This, of course, will slow down the Windows system, because it runs on the remaining smaller RAM.

One way to install HAXM is to download the installer with Android SDK Manager:

1. Run Android SDK Manager and install "Intel x86 Emulator Accelerator (HAXM installer) 5.3" under the Extra section.

2. Run the installer, intelhaxm-android.exe, in the ".\extras\intel\Hardware_Accelerated_Execution_Manager\" Android SDK foler in a command line window.

3. Follow instructions given by the installer and use the suggested size, 1024 MB, for the reserved RAM.

4. Click "Next". I got the following error:

This computer meets the requirements for HAXM, but Intel 
Virtualization Technology (VT-x) is not turned on. HAXM cannot be
installed until VT-x is enabled. Please refer to the Intel HAXM
documentation for more information.
Intel Accelerate HAXM Error - Virtualization Technology (VT) Required
Intel Accelerate HAXM Error - Virtualization Technology (VT) Required

To enable Virtualization Technology, I have to go to the BIOS setup. This requires some extra effort, so I am going to delay it to a later time.
