So this evening I had the pleasure of installing the Windows 8 Phone SDK, and 1/2 an hour later uninstalling it. Microsoft has made my life easier by making me run the Windows 8 Phone SDK on Windows 8 and also requiring Hyper-V to be able to run.
I have my instances of Windows 8 running in Parallels and VMWare which don't support running Hyper-V.
At least not now, and I don't care if they ever do.
I should not have to run Hyper-V in order to run a simple emulator.
What clown came up with that brilliant idea?
A machine running Windows 8 with SLAT
enabled is required to be able to run these emulators.
Well, at least I don't have to worry about build a Windows 8 Phone client for the app I am building. Man Microsoft has become such an unorganized mess it is almost unbelievable.
Back to Xcode...
