How can I add a system image for a target in Android Studio

Posted by: admin June 15, 2020 Leave a comment


I have an option grayed out that I must complete to progress with a project. It says that

No system images installed for this target.

No system Images

This answer is for Eclipse, but I’m not sure if there’s an Android Studio equivalent:

Unable to create Android Virtual Device

How to&Answers:

It is exactly the same answer. You need to download an image for the target SDK. So, open the SDK Manager and you will find a system image for the Android L API Level 20.

You can open the SDK Manager from the Tools Menu -> Android -> SDK Manager

You will see all Platform Tools, System Images, Documentation, etc. nested and grouped by API Level…including the Android L Preview


The Target Version you are selecting you have only installed platform files for this version you have need to install image of that version also.

You can check and install it through Android SDK manager.

Do the following steps:
Open Android SDK Manager. Check selected version and check “ARM EABI….” file for that version is installed or not. If not then install it and try again.
