    Every time I start the android device emulator in Android Studio, I get the following error:

    Emulator: emulator: WARNING: EmulatorService.cpp:448: Cannot find certfile: C:\Users\Restricted User\.android\emulator-grpc.cer security will be disabled.

    This started happening after the most recent update to the emulator last week. I have searched on Google to no avail other than to find out that other developers are having the same issue. I have recreated the emulated device, reinstalled some things, and I'm still having the problem. I should note that I do not get this error on a physical device. Just the emulator. Any ideas on how to solve this?

    I went and checked, the file really is not there.

    Welcome to Android Central! I moved this from the Android App Inventor forum to the Software Development forum since the former is intended for developers to promote their apps.

    Well, come to find out this file never existed on my system. I have a second system that didn't get the update and the file isn't there either. So this is a problem with the emulator because it's now looking for this file.

    Let try this!

    From the main navbar menu Tools > Android > SDK Manager > Android SDK > SDK Tools

    You'll then see the screen below where you can select '- Android Emulator Hypervisor Driver for AMD Processors (installer) version 1.3.0'
