I installed Windows Phone 8 SDK, and tried setting up the emulator. But it complained about my system's virtualization setting is not enabled.
I have installed Hyper-V from the "Add Programs and Features". When I go to my BIOS setting, I don't see such an option from where I can turn on the virutalization setting.
My motherboard is ASUS M5A88. Do I need to upgrade my BIOS?
Update: As per the suggestion, I updated the BIOS, and have turned on that setting, but still, Visual Studio fails to start the Emulator with this error. The older BIOS didn't have that setting though.
Update: I found the setting under "Advanced -> CPU Configuration". "Intel Virtualization Technology" is not there, I guess, because, it's for an AMD processor.
Still, no luck. I did a check by downloading a small utility, which checks if Virtualization is suuported on my system, and it said my system supports Virtualization.
My processor is an AMD-FX8150, if that matters here.
From the system requirements page of the dev site, I tried to CoreInfo tool, and that tool also says my system supports Hardware-assisted virtualization.
I have also enabled DEP for all programs from the Control panel.
Solved: After enabling virtualisation from BIOS, I had to re-install the Hyper-V packages from the "Turn Windows features on or off" program, re-start my system, and it started working.
