Do I need to update my computer hardware or software?

Please tell me how to update my computer hardware or software.

I am just starting on this journey to develop Android Apps using Android studio.

While running the Android Studio Setup Wizard, it concluded with this error:

Unable to install Intel® HAXM
Unknown Error
Please file a bug against Android Studio.

Please help, advise or offer suggestions.

I have been told that this error is because my computer is old or that Virtualization Technology was not enabled. I checked Virtualization Technology and found it is enabled.

Here is the information I have. And it seems that VT is Eables. So, what is next? Please advise.

It’s been a loooong time since I used or played with Android Studio…

Maybe this article is helpful:

You could also try to uncheck HAXM in the Android Studio Setup and try installing HAXM separately. You can download it from github here:

HAXM is used for the Android emulator in Android Studio so that you can run and test your app.

There are also other emulators out there that you could use to test your apps, or even hookup an actual Android device to computer via USB and test them on the physical device.
