Windows 7: Android emulator with play store access

Android emulator with play store access

I have been trying to get an android emulator to work that has play store access, but to no avail.

Blue stacks WAS working on this exact hardware a few days ago, then it went into it's typical "Initializing" loop.
I contacted Blue stacks support and all they said was wait for a new version, helpful.

I've tried andyroid, but it also just hangs on "starting..."

Why are my emulators getting stuck on starting?

I've also tried genymobile, I was able to install the playstore and ARM support, but the apps fail to load, and instead go to a black screen when trying to use them.

Are there any other android emulation solutions other than blue stacks, andyroid, and genymobile that might work? Is there a way to get them to stop hanging on load?

Thanks

I'd recommend a rooted one, the un-rooted BlueStacks has it's limitations.

I honestly don't recommend BlueStacks because some games wont work at all (Glitchy Graphics is what I mean).

Much better option. Better than an emulator it's to run the REAL Android OS as a virtual machine.
I've tried mine in VirtualBox and works great too.

Not an emulator but if you only want to run android apps I know Chrome OS can run them natively since last month and of course it has access to Google Play Store.
There are builds of Chromium OS (the open source project Chrome OS is based on) that you can run virtualized, but I'm couldn't find for certain if it includes this feature too. ( How To Run Chrome OS in VirtualBox and Try Out Chrome OS Before Buying a Chromebook )
Anyway, it might be another direction you look at for your problem.

The problem is. Will the games work with it?

I've seen no point with using VirtualBox either because Android will still detect the CPU in your desktop.

BlueStacks uses the identification name of Samsung Galaxy Tab

Not entirely sure. It would depend on each game ultimately, but most programs do work, and since it's the real OS and not only an emulator, behavior should be more close to a real tablet.

What would be the problem with that? It's the idea of virtual machines, to run other OSs directly on the host CPU totally unmodified.

It is absolutely essential that I have play store access. Is this possible with that VMplayer approach?

Did you even bother to look at the threads or google?

Yes, android in a vm has access to the google play store.
