Is possible to run the windows store app on phone emulator?

    Question

  • Hi,

    I have created a windows store app. Is it possible to run this app on phone emulator. I can find only Local machine, Simulator and remote machine as target machine to run my app. I cant find Emulator in the list.

    How can i still run it on the emulator.

    Thanks

  • Only Universal Apps can be run on both the phone and the PC/tablet. If you create a regular Windows 8.1 Store App you will have to convert it to a Universal App in order to allow it to run on the phone (emulator) as well.
