VMWare 12 Workstation + QEMU Android Emulator = terrible slowpoke

Hi,

I am trying to make a demo app for Android in VS2017 on the following machine. CPU - i7-3840QM, 16GB DDR3 Ram, 512Gb SSD. VS is installed in virtual machine (Win2008R2 in VMWare Workstation 12). I have to wait up to hours till appearance of my Android app in Qemu. During all that time I see nothing but this picture in the guest OS Task Manager. How can I make it work faster?

At the VMware Workstation software, make sure that the "Virtualize Intel VT-x/EPT or AMD/RVI" is enabled/checked on the "Processors" settings of the VM.

I am not familiar with QEMU but with the VT-x enabled inside the VM, it would be appear that QEMU should also be take advantage of VT-x. Based on this link, https://www.qemu.org/2017/11/22/haxm-usage-windows/ it looks like you have to set up QEMU to use HAXM.
