I am trying to develop a windows phone app within VMware player. I cannot for the life of me get Hyper-V to work within the VM.

I have scoured the internet and done the following

1) Enabled Virtualization

2) Setup the VMX file with hypervisor.cpuid.v0 = "FALSE"

3) I know my computer supports SLAT from CoreInfo

4) This is what I get... so frustrating...

Anyone have any thoughts. Sorry for the links to the pics, not enough rep in this group for posting pics.

You won't be able to get it to work. VMPlayer and Hyper-V cannot even co-exist on the Host machine. – Ramhound Mar 13 '14 at 18:59
You might be able to do the inverse run VMPlayer within a Hyper-V virtual machine – Ramhound Mar 13 '14 at 19:10
As Ramhound stated, you can't run Hyper-V in a VMware Player VM. You can though run it in a vSphere VM. – joeqwerty Mar 13 '14 at 20:25
man that stinks... we only allow Win7 machines on our domain at work, need to use a VM to make WinPhone app. Will have to keep pushing it to my phone to test I guess. – AndySousa Mar 14 '14 at 18:10
