Changing the language in the emulator

The ability to change the language in MEmu is considered almost the main advantage of the application. In any case, for most users this is probably the fundamental choice factor. And it's quite easy to enable Russian input. For this you need:

  1. After installing the emulator on your PC, open the settings.
  2. Go to the 'Language & input' section and select 'Keyboard & input methods'.
    Section 'Language and input'
  3. The MEmuIME keyboard must be enabled by default. If not, check the box next to the corresponding item.
  4. Open the 'Physical Keyboard' section and then the 'Microvirt Virtual Input' tab.
  5. It is necessary to install two keyboard layouts – Russian and English, but immediately enable Russian (Russian).

Now you can write in Russian in MEmu. You can switch between layouts right in the emulator using the Ctrl + Space shortcut. Here you can configure the layout parameters. For convenience, it is better to use the External Keyboard Helper application, which will allow you to restore the language change with the Shift + Alt combination, which is familiar to many, or some other.

Removing the old version and installing the new version

Upgrade, or rollback, of the emulator in this way is provided by the developer himself. On the official website, in the user group, you can always find the current version. You just need to download and install. Before that, you need to completely remove the old emulator. This is done in the usual way – through the 'Remove Programs' section in the PC control panel.

At the moment, the developer does not provide backup copies, but promises to enable such a function in the near future. In the meantime, users have to save the original data on their own using the function of exporting and importing images into the ova. This is done like this:

  1. In the menu we find a list of all images Android.
  2. Opposite the saved one, select the arrow icon.

If you need to save some data, you must do this before uninstalling.

Installation does not raise questions even for 'dummies'. Just a couple of clicks – and the program on your computer:

  1. You can install it by downloading the ARC file from the developer's official website.

Internet update

The emulator has an auto-update function. The program informs about the release of the most stable version for the user's PC (not necessarily the newest) with a special message. Before the release, the new version is available for testing for two days in groups on the site. That is, the users themselves determine the advisability of releasing a new version. You can check manually for updates. For this you need:

  1. In the top tray, select the icon with information about the emulator.
  2. Click on the 'Check Update' icon.
    Check Update Icon
  3. If an update is available, the emulator will offer to execute or refuse.

If the user refuses, the auto-update feature will reconnect, and the original emulator data will remain intact.
