When I try to run my WXGA800 emulator from Eclipse it’s giving an error like this
Failed to allocate memory: 8 This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.
I checked the following links also
I have tried reducing RAM size in emulator and increasing Java heapsize and ramsize but still I am facing the same error.
Update: Starting with Android SDK Manager version 21, the solution is to edit
C:\Users\<user>\.android\avd\<avd-profile-name>.avd\config.ini and change the value
Earlier Android SDK Manager releases:
Had the same problem with the built-in WXGA800 skin. I got it working by editing the virtual device setup to:
- Target 4.0.3 API 15 / 4.1.0 API 16
- SD-card 300MiB
- Resolution 1280 x 800 (set manually -not the built-in ones)
- Device ram size 1024MB (with MB added to the number)
- Abstracted LCD 160
Here my tablet config for 4.1.0 API 16
hw.lcd.density=160 sdcard.size=300M skin.path=1280x800 skin.name=1280x800 hw.cpu.arch=arm abi.type=armeabi-v7a hw.cpu.model=cortex-a8 vm.heapSize=48 hw.ramSize=1024MB image.sysdir.1=system-images\android-16\armeabi-v7a\
This config shows the software keys too
This following solution worked for me. In the following configuration file:
In my case, the solution was to change not only
config.ini but also
hardware.ini for the specific skin from

This error fires if you set the AVD RAM to anything that is larger then the single largest block of continuous memory the emulator is able to allocate. Close anything RAM heavy, start your emulator, start everything else you need. In a previous answer I have limited this to x86 images with IntelHAXM, but this actually is the case for all types of emulator instances.
In the AVD setup:
Change the CPU/ABI option to MIPS.
It worked for me
I had the same problem and what ended up being the issue was the RAM size: apparently 1024 (or whatever size) is different from 1024MB. Make sure you specify the units and it should work for you.
Changing the ramSize in config.ini file didnt work for me.
I changed the SD Card size to 1000 MiB in Edit Android Virtual Device window …It worked! 🙂
Go to edit Android Virtual Devices and change the 1024 Under Memory Options to 768. If it still doesn’t work, keep going lower and lower.
Reducing the RAM size in the AVD settings worked for me. The AVD being slow can eat up a lot of RAM, so keeping it at a minimum is feasible.
For Skin remove No Skin and add some skin into it
Try this if other answers did not work for you.
For me This happened for API 27 Emulator.
API 26 Emulator worked just fine. So I started API 26 Emulator first and then closed it.
Then I started API 27 Emulator and It worked with No errors at all.
