emulator: emulator: error: x86 emulation currently requires hardware acceleration! :- 

As per this response, the complete steps are:

1) Open SDK Manager (In Android Studio, go to Tools > Android > SDK Manager) and Download Intel x86 Emulator Accelerator (HAXM installer) if you haven’t.


2) Now go to your SDK

 directory C:users%USERNAME%AppDataLocalAndroidsdkextrasintelHardware_Accelerated_Execution_Manager and run the file named intelhaxm-android.exe.

 

In case you get an error like “Intel virtualization technology (vt,vt-x) is not enabled”. Go to your BIOS settings and enable Hardware Virtualization.

 

3) Restart Android Studio and then try to start the AVD again.

It might take a minute or 2 to show the emulator window.
