RE: emulator: ERROR: x86 emulation currently requires hardware acceleration!
Getting below mention error on setting up Android Emulator for Appium Automation Testing:
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!
Open android sdk manager and install below option under Extras folder and Under API level for which we want to create emulator.
Intel x86 Emulator Acceleartor [HAXM Installer]
As per my understanding this is image of emulator which we try to create, so until it is available we do not have option to create it
emulator -avd <Emulator Name> will then open created emulator
