Windows 7 Phone Development and Hyper-V/Server 2008


For those of you that want to develop Windows Phone apps on Hyper-V or Windows Server 2008, think again!!! You have been warned:


1. Intel I7 VPRO processor with Hyper Threading enabled causes blue screens with Hyper-V

a. Solution: Disable Hyper Hyper Threading

2. Windows 7 Phone Development Tool kit and Hyper-V will not work, the emulator will crash the VM, once it starts

a. Solution: Throw a Tantrum, kick, swear, run around and throw your clothes off and then install it on a non VM OS, oh wait another problem!!!

3. Windows 7 Phone tools do not work on Windows Server 2008

a. You need a host operating system like Windows 7/Vista
