    Hey, I can help here.

    First, are you on High Sierra? If so, you can turn on the native hypervisor by running the VS for Mac installer (or manually by adding a file called advancedFeatures.ini in .android with the single line HVF = on). Google recommends using native hypervisor when available and we agree, it's much faster.

    If you want to use HAXM on high sierra, the SDK manager or installer can install it but they can't enable it, because they can't enable kernel extensions in HS. So you'll need to install HAXM yourself from here:

    Let me know how that goes!
