    I am getting this message after upgrading to the latest B4A when I start the emulato.

    The settings are;
    Device 7.0" WSVGA (Tablet) (1024 x 600mdpi)
    Andriod 4.3 - API 18
    RAM 1024 VM Heap 18
    Internal Storage 1024
    SD Card 8192

    I have tried reducing the RAM but still the same.

    Try reducing also the Internal Storage & SD Card memory and reading this.

    I kept reducing and reducing and it eventually worked. The thing is it worded fine when I was using 3.8, but after updating to 4.3 it stopped.

    Many members prefer GenyMotion as emulator. I don't know but I suspect it is better :)

    There isn't any relation between the IDE and the Android emulator (when the emulator is started). The emulator is part of Android SDK.
