my emulator keeps saying that it won't open because I don't have a HAXM installed. Does any one know how to install one?

Hi Breckconley

What type of processor does your machine have? If it's intel you will have to lower the amount of RAM used by HAXM in the control panel. If you are using AMD then you might have some issues...see this post for more clarification.. https://teamtreehouse.com/community/error-please-ensure-intel-haxm-is-properly-installed-and-usable

no. I'm using the AVD bundled with Android studio.

If you are using an Intel processor on the machine that you are using for development, then you will need the HAXM installer.

Assuming you do have that You will need to click on the SDK manager button, which is next to the AVD manager button.

Once you have the SDK manager window up, scroll down til you see the "Extras" Folder. Under that you should find the "Intel x86 Emulator Accelerator (HAXM installer)" Click the check box and then install. You should be good to go then.

I'm using Android Studio version 1.0, the same version that is being used for the "Weather APP" tutorial. Best of luck coder :)
