Using both VirtualBox and Android Emulators on AMD-based PCs

Posted in Uncategorized by rmt on July 28, 2018

With an AMD-based PC running Windows 10, changing the hypervisor launch type is required in order to switch between using VirtualBox and using Android emulators.

Virtualbox requires the launch type to be “off”, and Android emulators require the launch type to be “auto”. Enter the following commands in a Command Prompt or a PowerShell window started with “Run As Administrator”.

 

To enable Virtualbox:

bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off

 

To enable the Android Emulator:

bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype auto
