Is the account you are trying to install on an administrator? If not, it won't work. You have to be an administrator to install TakeControl on Windows 8.1; it's security measure is extremely high.

If you do have administrator privilege, try right clicking on the install script and select "Run as administrator".

Nook HD Android Emulator Won't Start
Thu, 08 Oct 2015 09:48:47 +0000

I had a strange problem where the newly created Nook HD Android emulator won't start today. After launching it from the Android Virtual Device (AVD) Manager, the emulator screen is just blank; no Android logo or anything.

At first, I thought it just needed a long time to start. But after waiting four hours, I decided that's not the case. Windows Event Viewer did not show any related errors. So I was a little baffled.

Finally, after spending a lot of time adjusting setting and trying to launch it, it finally launched. The following setting worked for me.

  • Device: Nook HD (900 x 1440:hdpi)
  • Target: Android 4.0.3 - API Level 15
  • CPU/ABI: ARM (armeabi-v7a)
  • Keyboard: Hardware keyboard present: checked
  • Skin: No skin
  • Front Camera: None
  • Back Camera: None
  • Memory Option: RAM: 1024 VM Heap: 32
  • Internal Storage: 128 MiB
  • SD Card: Size: 128 MiB
  • Snapshot: unchecked
  • Use Host GPU: checked

Seems that the "Use Host GPU" being disabled is what kept it from working. Maybe that has something to do with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 660M and the Intel HD Graphics 4000 in my Asus G46VW gaming laptop.
