Surface Emulator?


  • I'm using VS 2017 and looking for the Surface Emulator to debug regular Windows Desktop apps (C++ and C#)

    I have it for VS 2015 I think, but looking for a newer version. Is there one for VS 2017 that doesn't limit me to UWA? It's so that I can emulate touch on both Windows 7 and Windows 10.

  • Hi Michael

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    Please have a look at the system requirements for surface sdk, and I couldn’t install it because it need visual studio 2010. Could you please share how did you get it in visual studio 2015?

    Besides, you could use Visual Studio simulator to debug, please refer to here:

    Best regards,
