    I am trying to start windows phone 8.1 emulator on windows 8 without running it from visual studio 2013 .. I ran the command ---> xde -vhd "<path to sdcard.vhd>" .. It starts but then this shows up :untitled.jpg

    So any solution ??? Is it necessary to have windows phone 8.1 emulator only on windows 8.1 ??? I mean if I don't run it from visual studio then it should run fine on windows 8 too , won't it ??

    Not sure how to answer your question exactly. I have never heard of a windows phone emulator. So that's neat. Is it made by Microsoft? Also I'm confused why you are still on Windows 8 when the Windows 8.1 is a free update. Maybe if you updated the PC OS it would fix your problem.

    Bro , by emulator I mean the one that comes with visual studio 2013 to test your app as you would on your phone .. Actually , I am not a developer .. I just wanted to see how the UI is and a few of the features .. And , actually I had updated to windows 8.1 but then there were serious mouse issues with my touchpad driver and so I went back to win 8 .. Because without the driver a few useful features of the touchpad aren't available ...

    the emulator/simulator requires you to have specific things enabled in bios or efi/supported by your hardware, otherwise it won't run. this is the same for us developers. it's not rocket science to figure out ;)
