How to use Hyper-V in Windows 8.1 x64 bit basic edition. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am learning windows phone 8.1 development with MVA but I am unable to use Windows Phone emulator in Visual Studio. It needs Hyper-V and it requires Windows Profesisional. I only have basic edition and for financial reasons I don't want to purchase and upgrade to Windows Pro.

    I did not have such issue with android development in Eclipse.

    My questions:

    1) Is there a way to use Hyper-V with Windows 8.1 basic edition? or is there a trick with other virtualization softwares like VMWare or VirtualBox?

    2) Is there another way to test Windows Phone applications with my current Windows settings?

    Thanks for your good advices!
