Hi there,

You might need to run the HAXM installer as even if the SDK manager says it is "installed", it might not be; it may just be downloaded.

So, find your Android SDK folder; not the Android Studio folder (unless you put them all in one place). My sdk is C:\Users[username]\AppData\Local\Android\sdk - then carry on to \extras\intel\Hardware_Accelerated_Execution_Manager

In there, run the intelhaxm-android installer then restart Android Studio. That should then allow you to run the emulator. Although I'd recommend using a different emulator than the stock one - it takes SO long to start up!

I hope that helps.
