    The actual Android SDK? It's slow as fuck, but if you're still using computer that has less RAM than a potato then I guess you don't mind the wait.

    I am using the SDK right now...it is literally taking 5 minutes to load a page, and not 100% sure it will let me install instagram...:\

    It's super slow..

    there is no alternative. I tried every single emulator avaible out there for PC for android and iphone platforms. None of them was supporting Instagram. I hope you could save your time by not doing that again

    I was able to put Android Ice Cream on my ASUS Netwook.

    It will run most Apps, but not all.

    The problem is that the install Does Not save the App, you have to install each time.

    No problem if they are free.

    Do a search for Netbootin & Androidx86, one the site tell you how to do an install.

    it doesn't support ARM native code, so the instagram app won't run on it, i tried
    it's a nice little thing tho, it would be a lot better than bluestacks

    I know this is an old thread, but are these applications still relevant, and have any risen to the top? Are there any alternatives out there, yet, free?

    May have to do some code-swapping for that one, not really, because I'm too lazy and mainly use Windows.

    Guys why you not just use Android device. Clean android with even some cheap Moto G3 can provide 90% compatibility with all devices.

    Edit:
    hah, fck, I just realized it's not mobile ;)
    but still you can use real android devices, use some device id changer with rooted device and you have new device ;)

    I would suggest "MEMU Emulator".
    Look it up, it's great.

    No, but I found this online:

    1. Open the "Google Play" app and press the home button to return
    2. Go to Settings → Applications → Manage Applications
    3. Select the "ALL" tab, Search for "Google Play Store" and press it to open.
    4. Press "Clear cache"
    5. Press "Force stop"
    6. Return to Settings → Applications → Manage Applications
    7. Press "Google Services Framework"
    8. Press "Clear Data"
    9. Press "Force Stop"
    10. Start "Google Play Store" and it should give an error
    11. Reboot. Once your device has restarted Google Play Store should work. Wait a minute or too if it doesn't.
