Can’t start the Windows Phone Emulator – The Windows Phone Emulator couldn’t start because the hypervisor isn’t running.

So I figured I’d document my first experiences with the Windows Phone 8 SDK.

First issue I ran into was an error “The Windows Phone Emulator couldn’t start because the hypervisor isn’t running.”

While the information shown in the “more information” link helps its a bit verbose.

Basically enable “Execute disable bit” and “Intel Virtualization Technology” in the equivalent BIOS settings of your motherboard.

That’s it. Should be working now!
