I was using BB10 simulator on windows 8 but last night I installed windows Phone 8 development environment and it also installed Hyper-V (or activated it). Now I am unable to run BB10 simulator in VMWare Player. Wondering how I can run them both at the same time or both on the same machine?

running 2 hypervisor the same time is often an issue. You should only use one. I prefer VMware over Hyper-V. –  magicandre1981 Dec 16 '12 at 8:25

I have got a solution. This method will allow me use one technology at a time (which is my current requirement)

You can disable Hyper-V without uninstalling it. Start a command prompt with administrator rights and execute the following command:

// to disable hyper-v
bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off

// to enable hyper-v
bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype auto

Both Operations require restarting your computer.

Note: I also found this very helpful when using intel x86 android emulator because without this, it was not possible to use it.
