Error: Please ensure Intel HAXM is properly installed and usable
I'm using the newest version of Android Studio, version 1.4, and I get the message emulator: ERROR: x86 emulation currently requires hardware acceleration! Please ensure Intel HAXM is properly installed and usable. CPU acceleration status: HAX kernel module is not installed! when I try to run the emulator. It did say that it couldn't install this when I first downloaded it, but there was nothing I could do. Does anyone have a workaround for this?

Depending on your processor, you may not be able to use HAXM. It requires an Intel CPU. If your computer uses an AMD CPU instead, there isn't much you can do.
One workaround is to use one of the ARM images for the emulator, not an x86 image.
so i need to quit the course in other words
