We are working on Android 8.0 migration. Used Android SDK API 26. Created sample project and tried to deploy in Android Emulator by using SDK 26 but only black screen displayed.

This version of emulator is used intel x86 (HAXM), but it’s not compatible with windows. Please let me know the solution to run on emulator.

Hi Saravanan,

I'm going to need more details about your steps to try to deploy to Android 26. It doesn't sound like you're actually creating the emulator from your description.

Also, what is this testing for? Accessibility? Who provided you with the test plan?

For the future, please file Android emulator bugs under Android/General - SDK manager is a separate product. Thanks!

Based on your screenshots it looks like you may not have HAXM installed already, or you have some type of incompatibility with your machine such as Hyper V being active, or a processor that is not VT/NX compatible. Here are a couple of articles that may help out:



There is also a "haxm_check.exe" inside the HAXM installation that will check VT and NX support for your machine.

Finally you can use "sc query intelhaxm" to ensure it is running when it is installed.
