However, you will then have limited features and technical assistance will no longer be available.

Genymotion Desktop has been designed to run on physical workstations: Servers, Virtual Machines and VPS are not supported.

No. Genymotion Desktop cannot run in a cloud instance.

However, we have developed our Genymotion Device Image for Cloud providers product especially for this use.

Reboot your PC and try again.

If this does not fix the problem, please refer to this article from our help center: How to fix “Unable to start a Virtual Device” error?

Google Apps are not pre-installed on the devices. You need to install the openGAPPs package to get Google Play Store and other Google Apps. See Genymotion Desktop user manual for detailed instructions.

If you can’t find an app or game or Google Play Store, or if it says “Your device isn’t compatible with this version”, it may mean that the app or game is only available for ARM.

For more details and instructions, please refer to this article.

An Internet connection is mandatory at first run, to connect to your account and download the Android images when installing a new device.

However, you can then use Genymotion Desktop offline for 15 days – or more if you have subscribed to a Premium plan.
