        3 cases:

        Tried to install HAXM under Fusion 4.1 running XP xp3 x64 (guest OS), host: my own MacBook Air 2012, i5-3427U, Mac OSX 10.7.5.

        Failed with "...does not support Intel Virtualization Technology (VT-x)"

        This is probably because you haven't enabled virtualized VT-x for your Windows XP guest.  Though technically not supported in Fusion 4, virtualized VT-x can be enabled by adding the following configuration option to your .vmx file:

         

        vhv.enable = TRUE


        For more information, see Running Nested VMs.

         

        I also tried my customer's machine i5-3570K.

        HAXM installed w/o problems, but Android emulator fails to use it. Error message differs depending on whther I run Android emulator as a regular (unprivileged) user or as administrator.

        VmWare WS is installed there too, but didn't run.

        I'm not sure what version of VmWare is installed, I can check it tomorrow if it makes sense.

        Workstation from version 7 onwards should not have any problems coexisting with foreign hypervisors. If you uninstall Workstation, does the Android emulator use HAXM?

          Thanks for your suggestions. Sorry to say that no luck with vhv.enable = TRUE on my Mac running Fusion 4.1.3 (730298).

          I shutted down guest OS, stopped Fusion, added the setting to *.vmx file, made sure that no other vhv.enable in the other lines, re-launched Fusion and started guest OS, made sure that the settings is still in the file (it changed its line# btw) and still HAXM says that VT-x is not supported.


          Regarding host-OS case -- as I said it's not my own machine and I can't uninstall anything, but I will try to convice the owner to try, then will get back with results. BTW version of VmWare workstation is 7.1, so if I get it right this version of VmWare not supposed to interfere with HAXM on host OS, right?

            Make sure that the VM has virtual hardware version 8.  If you still don't have success, please post the vmware.log file.

            That's correct.

              vmware.log is attached

              and yes, virtual hw is v8. Moreover, I found the setting below and turned it into VT-x with EPT, then rebooted and grabbed the log above right after its start

                Sorry. That's not the log I'm interested in. I'd like to see the vmware.log file for the VM. It's in the same place as the .vmx file. It's best if you post it as an attachment.

                 

                Thanks!

                  ...fixed in my previous post  (BTW the lines were taken from vmware.log)

                    You've got a typo in your .vmx file.  The setting is "vhv.enable", not "vhv.enabled".

                      thanks,

                      With case #1 -- after the setting was fixed, it started failing with different message saying that CPU type is not supported. Looks like there is a problem in Haxm itself.

                      Regarding 2nd case, we tried to work with re-installed Haxm after VmWare WS was completely uninstalled. Seems uninstallation did not help. Haxm was constantly failing with the same error messages. So I conclude - VmWare WS does not interfere with Haxm, at least in this case.

                      Thanks for your help!
