Lately i wanted to get into Windows Phone 8 development and i installed Visual Studio 2013 + Windows Phone SDK 8 + Visual Studio 2013 Latest update. My system parameters are: - 8gb ram - Windows 8.1 64bit system - Intel i5 The moment i try to run a Windows Phone project a dialog appears and it says: Title - " Cant start the windows phone emulator" Subtitle - "The Windows Phone Emulator requires Hyper-V.Your PC is missing the following pre-requisites required to run Hyper-V: -Windows 8 Professional(64 bit)"
After i saw that i checked for how to upgrade Normal Windows 8.1 to Windows 8.1 Professional. With no luck i tried to find out more about to install Hyper-V with the BIOS configuration with no luck as well.
Usually i develop on Android with Eclipse(with the Emulator) so i can't understand the reason why a emulator of Windows Phone can't run on my system.
P.S I don't have Hyper-V feature to be turned on/off in the windows feature list.
Thanks heads up for each answer! :)
