I apologize for scaring away @Avivon .
I was finally able to install an emulator (sorry, not MIT's) on my Windows 11 Home laptop by running a script I found at
That did not help me get past MIT's HAXM requirement, but from the discontinuation notes at
I got renewed hope Microsoft's HyperV would open the door to another emulator install.
My first attempt, MemuPlay, eventually worked after running its install as Administrator,
steering clear of
- two crapware packages it tried to push during its install,
- an unnecessary attempt to ask for permission to jump the firewall
and doing a couple of reboots and giving MemuPlay permission to meddle with my virtualization layer.
Initial couple of runs of MemuPlay needed Administrator startup (right click) to build its Virtual Machine.
Beware of clamorous startup, as it runs commercials at startup.
There is a .APK control you can use to pull in a downloaded Companion.apk file
(no drag and drop like some other emulators.)
