I cannot emulate my games - I need Hyper-v. I am on Windows 8.1, and I desperately need the emulating tool. Any ideas? RRS feed

  • Hi All,

    I am making a Unity game for Windows Phone 8. As it has already been released, I want to upload some gameplay videos to up the popularity. I can't control the character on my laptop in Unity, so I can only use my phone. This is not the most... Smooth recording experience (shaky camera, background, screen fuzz) and as WP8 has no screen capture app I have no other options. However, I would be able to make a nice recording from the emulator, and it would work. But I always have to build to my device; this is why. When I build to an emulator, it says: "Can't start the Windows Phone Emulator. The Windows Phone Emulator requires Hyper-v." It says that I need Windows 8 Professional. I am on Windows 8.1, and I desperately need a solution. Any alternatives or workarounds? Please, I really need your help.
