AVD Manager won't let me create an emulator

I followed the steps as Ben Jakuben outlined them and the OK button stayed grayed out in the AVD manager create device window and wouldn't let me create an emulator.

it says "No CPU/ABI system image available for this target"

You need a system image for the API level. So open the SDK Manager and install either the ARM or Intel system images that relate to the API that you need. This should solve your problem.

I also include the system image in the Android Studio bundle I made available for download in the Teacher's Notes, so you can always revert to that if you need to.

Thanks. I'm not super familiar with what ARM or Intel system images are but it worked great. Thank you!
