    I want to install Visual Studio SDK and Emulators


    I want to install Visual Studio SDK and Emulators, I keep getting informed I need to have Hyper-V in my BIOS enabled, which I have enabled and that I need to be running Windows 8.1 Pro, which I'm also running, why isn't it installing ?

    Have you installed hyper-v through windows components? Hyper-V - Enable and Disable in Windows 8

    Even if VT-x is enabled in BIOS and hypervisorlauchtype is set to auto in bcdedit you still need to install it. Hyper-V isn't installed by default in 8.1 Pro.

    What is the error you get exactly?

    I got Windows Phone SDK to install, not the emulators. I get a warning that the emulators can't be installed because Hyper-V is not installed, but an altered name of Hyper-V has always been enabled in my BIOS ? I found this tool, which is to check if your CPU is Hyper-V enabled and mine isn't, but the option is enabled in the BIOS, doesn't make sense ?

    Did you install Hyper-V as in the tutorial in post #2? As I said you have to install it.

    Post a picture of your windows features perhaps. Should look like this:

    If you haven't installed it you can't run the emulator. If your (unspecified) CPU stops you installing Hyper-V you can't run the emulator. For example I have VT-x on my core2duo macbook pro but not SLAT so I can't install hyper V platform - only the management tools. There is no workaround for that if your CPU doesn't support it. Try to install Hyper-V and see what happens.

    I mentioned Hyper-V was installed in Windows 8.1 Pro ! Only Hyper-V Platform didn't get installed same reason as your CPU, no support for SLAT. Shouldn't the emulation tools work without SLAT ?

    I think you are stuck. The phone emulator requires hyper-v platform and hyper-v platform requires a CPU with SLAT on windows 8.

    Interestingly hyper-v on server 2012 doesn't require slat (Q: Will Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V require the processor to support SLAT? | Windows Server 2012 content from Windows IT Pro) but that doesn't help really...
