Windows 10 Mobile emulator RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    I need to run a Windows 10 Mobile on my machine. Not inside Visual Studio, just stand alone. Can this be done? Couldn't find a page that says how to do that without involving Visual Studio and some project creation... 

    Thanks!

  • Yeah... No, that's actually incorrect. Doesn't matter: I installed VS2017 (not 2015) and ran one project. After that I just took note of the used command line and used that to run the emulator by itself: 

    "C:\Program
    Files (x86)\Microsoft XDE\10.0.15063.0\XDE.exe" /name "Mobile
    Emulator 10.0.15063.0 WVGA 4 inch 1GB.carlos" /displayName "Mobile
    Emulator 10.0.15063.0 WVGA 4 inch 1GB" /vhd "C:\Program Files
    (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Emulation\Mobile\10.0.15063.0\Flash.vhd" /video
    "480x854" /memsize 1024 /diagonalSize 4 /language 409 /creatediffdisk
    "C:\Users\Carlos\AppData\Local\Microsoft\XDE\10.0.15063.0\dd.480x854.1024.vhd"
    /snapshot  /fastShutdown

    Thanks anyway.

  • Microsoft Emulator for Windows 10 Mobile requires Visual Studio 2015 so you can't do this without Visual Studio.
