Windows Phone Emulator error, Hyper-V components not running, Windows 8.1 hosted in VMWare Player RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Environment:

    Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit as host o/s

    Windows 8.1 Enterprise 64-bit hosted in VMWare Player (current version)

    Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows Phone (Update 4)

    I get the error below when trying to run a very simple phone app.  I know MS says a vm inside a vm environment isn't supported, but I know it can work, has anyone had success with this?  Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Prior to seeing the error below, the emulator emits the on-screen messages: "Loading ..." followed by "The Windows Phone OS is starting ..." followed by the error:

    Of all the Hyper-V services available, the Hyper-V Virtual Machine Management service is the only one which is running.
