Adroid App – HAX kernel module is not installed!

I am starting to learn how to develop a android application and after I installed Android Studio and try to run my first app on an emulator, I found myself facing this first problem:

CPU acceleration status: HAX kernel module is not installed!

I did a little research and I found the fallowing video:, where it explains how to fix it.

1. Make sure the SDK manager has the Intel x86 Emulator Accelerator installed, as  you see here:

SDK Manager - HAXM Installer

2. Go to SDK folder (default: C:\Users\Jaider\AppData\Local\Android\sdk) and navigate to extras > intel > Hardware_Accelerated_Execution_Manager > and Install intelhaxm-android.exe

After I fixed this little problem, I got everything working just fine 😀
