Prerequisites For Android Emulators As in Software Runtimes and Hardware Drivers

Our first advice will be to have the latest version of your Operating system. We tell this because; having the latest version of an Operating system on your pc or laptop; will usually have much more stability and under the hood updates; that can bring in more fixes of bugs and glitches that you faced previously. Hence; always update your OS to the latest version.

Note: this is for windows users.

Software Runtimes

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0
  • Direct X Runtime
  • Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package’s (2008,2010 & 2013 versions)


Make sure you have the latest and correct drivers for your hardware. Have old or incorrect drivers can hinder the performance and may lead to underutilization of your hardware. Sometimes incorrect and old drivers lead to errors. So, have the latest and correct drivers.

  • Latest Chipset Drivers
  • Your Graphics Card or Graphics Chipset Drivers, or VGA Drivers.
