Error launch failed on Android virtual machine

I tried to launch an android build of a UE4 project on an ADV (Android Virtual Machine) as a test and the Build failed.

My specs:

Windows 8.1 Enterprise

Proccesor: Intel(R) Core™ i3-3240 CPU @ 3.40GHz


My ADV specs:

Android 5.1.1 - API Level 22

Device: Nexus 5 (4.95", 1080x 1920; xxhdpi)

Proccesor: Intel Atom (x86_64)

Ram: 768MB

VM Head: 64

SDKs I have installed:


Android SDK Tools Rev. 24.4

Android SDK Build-tools Rev. 19.1; 20; 21.1.2; 22.0.1; 23.0.1

Android 5.1.1 (API 22)

SDK Platform

Intel x86 Atom_64 System Image

Google APIs

Google APIs Intel x86 Atom_64 System Image

Google APIs Intel x86 Atom System Image

Sources for Android SDK


Intel x86 Emulator Accelerator (HAXM Installer)

Is there something I’m doing wrong or is this a bug???


As far as i know, UE4 does not support virtual hardware emulation. To work in the Editor and launch projects, you need have the real devices.
