    Windows 10 or Andriod?


    I'm a little confused about Windows 10 (Pro). When I first started my new computer, it looked like android with apps (titles), but I didn't like that, so now my computers runs and looks like Windows 7 (Pro). Lately, I've been playing a game that runs on Android only, and using BlueStacks. However, BlueStacks sometimes crashes and I lose the game. I have lots of memory and ram going on. So my first question is, is Windows 10 "Dos" based or Andriod?

    Thanks

    No, neither Android nor latest Windows has nothing to do with DOS.

    Your problem is Bluestacks. It's slow and unstable.

    Instead try AMIDuOS or GenyMotion with Oracle VirtualBox.

    Both solutions are really fast and stable. I use them all the time.

    Thank you slicendice. So I took your advice and downloaded and installed Oracle VirtualBox. Installed it. Now my next question (as I have never used this), is how do I go to Google (play store) and load in my game that I play?

    Follow all the instructions step by step in GenyMotion UserGuides. You have to do some steps before you get Android up and running.

    I tried AMIDuOS and it keeps crashing my PC. Any thoughts?

    Would love to use VB, however, there are NO steps on how to go from point A (installing VB (which I found), to getting my android game to play. I would love to use VB.

    For Both AmiDuOS, you need to disable Windows Hypervisor.

    Here is how to do that:


    1. Open Command Prompt as Administrator (make sure it is launched as Admin or it won't work)
      1. Open START
      2. Type CMD
      3. Right Click CMD
      4. Click Run As Administrator
      5. Click YES when asked "Do you want to allow this application to make changes to your computer"

    2. Type bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off
    3. Hit Enter
    4. Reboot computer


    See attached screenshot for more detailed steps:

    slicendice, Thanks, this worked. Not impressed with the product however. IMHO Bluestacks works better for what I need.

    You're welcome!
    I don't see how slow Bluestacks emulator can be any better than any of the real virtualization solutions out there.

    I have tried them all, and Bluestacks was the first one to go in the BIN for me. Genymotion and AmiDuOS has been the only ones really worthwhile. Now that MS got Android to work fast too in the Visual Studio Emulators/VMs that is an alternative too.

    Care to explain why AmiDuOS does not suit your needs??
