    Hello!

    I would also be interested in a little tutorial explaining how to use the SDK to discover wp8.1.
    @Chouhan --> change the title of the thread, it's not explicit

    If you just want to check out the emulator:

    Open Visdual Studio. Go to File -> New Project -> Templates -> Store-Apps -> Empty App (Universal App). Give it any name and lick OK. Now you have a new project. At the top is a green arrow with Local Computer next to it. Click on the arrow which points down right to it click on start project and then the Windows Phone 8.1 part. Now the text at the arrow changes and a emulator is selected (by default the smallest version). If you want you can click the down arrow again and change the emulator. then click the green arrow and the emulator start. it takes a little bit longer the first time. it starts a virtual machine in the background. If it is powered up your app starts. you can exit out of it and explore.

    You can sign in to the emulator with an MS account as well, helps when trying out Cortana.

    Edit: your error was not the one I thought of. So my answer was irrelevant.

    Do you have virtualization enabled in your bios? What processor do you have?

    Without providing more information about what Hyper-V error you're seeing, you're asking us to guess what the problem is and how to fix it. Not a very efficient way to troubleshoot...

    if that's not the case please provide more information.

    Offtopic, but Visual Studio should be locked to Developers... Or at least have a "You need to learn how find info on the web" guide before accepting users. YK :P

    I said that it is turned on. My CPU has all the requirements for running hyper-v, but for some reason it doesn't let me use it, it worked perfectly on Windows 8. Google didn't help

    Try running it as administrator. It's been a long time since I installed VS, but I seem to recall that the emulator needed some admin permission, your user having to be added to some group in AD, but I don't remember for sure... I'm thinking maybe run as admin might work.

    Have you double-checked to see if Hyper-V (or virtualization) is enabled in BIOS? Is your Windows install the 64 bit variety? Have you tried run as administrator?

    Actually my problem is when installing the wp8.1 emulator. I tried without it but the p8.1 universal app template won't show up.
    When installing the emulator, my computer says the hyper-v issue

    I would say that you aren't running a 64-bit version of Windows, can you post a screen shot of the system properties?

    Also remember that Virtualisation hardware support has to be switched on in EFI, as well as Hyper-V being installed in Windows.

    That's what I think, too. There's a reason it says that the missing requirement is Windows 8 x64.
