I'm new to Android programming. I installed Java and Android Studio.
I've tried to run the 1st application (Hello world), but it seems that something went wrong.

I looked on the web, but I could find that everything is configured correctly, such as Intel x86 Emulator Accelerator is installed, ARM EABI v7a System Image is installed etc. but I still cannot run my project.

What is the problem?

I already read this thread (before I posted mine). I already have ARM EABI and Intel x86 Emulator Accelerator. Any other idea how to fix this?

Wrong emulator settings: the error message says that you're trying to use intel system image in emulator, but you need to set up arm-eabi system image as platform in AVD settings.

Hello Uriel,

I had this exact same problem recently and I was able to fix it by enabling the VT-x in the Bios.

There was great video on YouTube that detailed how to go about this titled, 'VT-x is Disabled in The Bios Android Studio. [Solved Problem] How to Enable VT-x in the Bios?'

I just want to clarify that I'm not an expert when it comes to mucking around with the BIOS settings and so I suppose this is my continue at you own risk disclaimer :)

But it worked for me.

Vladimir S.

Wrong emulator settings: the error message says that you're trying to use intel system image in emulator, but you need to set up arm-eabi system image as platform in AVD settings.

Where, exactly, do I need to configure this in AVD Manager?
Also, it is mentioned that I would need to enable TV-X in BIOS. However, it is enabled in my BIOS.image

What else can be done in order to solve it?

"Nougat: Android 7.0 x86" - this is intel platform system image. Choose any system with arm-eabi (not only Nougat can be selected).

Sorry, it isn't possible to me to check on PC now, phone only, I'm on working trip. As you can see, system images are on Recommended tab, try to switch to Other images tab.

As suggested: I cleared and rebuilt the project, but it failed (again)...

It's still notifies that HAXM is required (but is installed) and VT-x is required to be enabled in BIOS (and the virtualization is enabled in BIOS).

Is that so hard to running an emulator on Android Studio???

Here are the screenshots.imageimageimageimageimage

I deleted the previous Nexus 5, and configured Nexus 4. I selected 'Other images' tab, and selected Nougat based on armeabi-v7a. Afterwards, I clicked the play triangle button, but got a message that the project is still not configured well. I clicked 'Continue Anyway' button, and got an error...

What should be done now? Is that so difficult to use Android Studio?
