How to install the Intel x86 Emulator Accelerator (HAXM)

When we launch the Android virtual device, we often get the error saying –
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!
To fix above error, You need to open Android SDK Manager and Download Intel x86 Emulator Accelerator (HAXM installer)
Then Go to below directory within Android installation directory
extras/intel/Hardware_Accelerated_Execution_Manager and run below file
“intelhaxm-android.exe”
This is required to fast track the booting process of the Android Emulator.
Note that only computers with Intel processors have virtualization technology. You can enable it from the boot menu of your system.
