Windows Phone Emulator Error

While trying to run Windows Phone emulator I was facing given error.

The Windows Phone Emulator wasn’t able to create the virtual machine: Something happened while creating a switch: Xde couldn’t find an IPv4 address for the host machine.


Simple Resolution to this problem is:

  • Run Hyper-V Manager as Admin


  • Go to Action > Virtual Switch Manager.


  • Click on “New Network Switch’


  • Select Internal and Create Virtual Switch


  • Give Name of Virtual Switch as “Windows Phone Emulator Internal Switch”


  • Click “OK” and restart your machine.



    After following these steps you should be able to run Windows Phone 8 Emulator without any issue.

    In case it solves/ doesn’t solve your problem mention that in comments.
