I am trying to run the app on the emulator

I want to know if I am unable to install HAXM properly because it doesn't run intel? If so, is there a way around this?

Otherwise, when I try to run it appears as Cannot launch AVD in emulator. Output: emulator: WARNING: Classic qemu does not support SMP. The hw.cpu.ncore option from your config file is ignored. emulator: ERROR: x86 emulation currently requires hardware acceleration! Please ensure Intel HAXM is properly installed and usable. CPU acceleration status: Android Emulator requires an Intel processor with VT-x and NX support. Your CPU: 'AuthenticAMD'7

Thank you

I installed it on the day so it shouldn't be out of date

I had the same problem and searched the web for answers until I found out that this function cannot be run on AMD processors... So my only solution that I found was to use my laptop that had Intel processors installed.

when u download HAXM. make sure you go to its location and run it as administrator. that will fix your problem. location should be something like C:\Android\sdk\extras\intel\Hardware_Accelerated_Execution_Manager
