android – How to fix: HAXM silent installation only support mac OS X from 10.8 to 10.10

Questions:

After updated my Mac to OS X El Capitan 10.11.1 I couldn’t create new virtual devices in Android Studio

From now, when I create a New Virtual Device and run my application I have the following message:

> emulator: The memory needed by this AVD exceeds the max specified in
> your HAXM configuration. HAXM is not working and emulator runs in
> emulation mode emulator: AVD      RAM size = 1024 MB emulator: HAXM
> max RAM size = 512 MB emulator: You might want to adjust your AVD RAM
> size and/or HAXM configuration to run in fast virt mode. emulator:
> emulator window was out of view and was recentered emulator:
> UpdateChecker: skipped version check

I followed this answer to resolve the problem but when I try to installing it again I have the following message:

HAXM silent installation only support mac OS X from 10.8 to 10.10 !

So, What is the proper way to install the HAXM kernel extension on 10.11 El Capitan?

How to&Answers:

I have the same problem and it had resolved by manually install HAXM latest version for Mac OS 10.11.

  1. Download haxm-macosx_r05.zip (1.1.5) from https://software.intel.com/en-us/android/articles/intel-hardware-accelerated-execution-manager/
  2. Run “HAXM installation” file from terminal.

I hope it helpful.

Answer:

If you have Homebrew installed, you can do it like this:

brew install caskroom/cask/intel-haxm

Here’s the formulae, it currently points to version 7.2.0:
