Android Default Emulators

LightStampLightStamp USMember, University

I've installed Xamarin and it is a part of the VS2015 - Took the Xamarin Android 101 class but couldn't run the emulator nor see the possible default emulators in the IDE. So I downloaded the Xamarin Emulator and a few images but I get the message "Failed to initialize the Nexxus 5 (Lollipop). VBoxManage command failed. See log for further details." I'm new to the VS2015 Android integration but thought it'd be a little easier. Need to get this sorted out before my class on Monday.
Any ideas? even uninstall reinstall??

    Rolling back to Xamarin 3 - maybe 4 not ready for prime time?

    I think the problem is in your virtual machine. Try uninstalling virtual machine and installing it again. Restart your VS and try it

    Does the Xamarin installer for Windows install the virtual machine or do I provide it separately?
