    Android on Win 10. Who has ideas?


    Hey guys and girls, I have a love for android, but I do not want all that on my phone. I have tried Bluestacks Native, RemixOS player(both Boot up version and in Windows App), and a few emulators. Who has a good idea of what I can do to run Android Apps on Windows itself, with out needing to wait for a Emulator to start up? I need something that starts up when Windows Boots up and does not open randomly when I mount ISOfiles to PowerIso. Please help me out.

    Nox is very good, and only takes about 10 seconds to load.

    Beware - most android emulators do not work or crash if you have the hyper-v hypervisor activated. I have two boot entries for same OS - one that boots with hypervisor active, and one without.

    Not needed if you do not have hyper-v, or do not set it up.

    Do not know exactly how to start NOX on bootup, but must be easy enough to do by a command line batch file, or use task scheduler etc.

    Thank you my kind man, I tried NOX 5.0.0.1 and I am IMPRESSED with it. It is much faster and the layout is Samsung Galaxy S3 MINI. I love it. A little bit laggish, but I can live with the lag. It responds better to key inputs from my XBOX360 controller and doesn't detect it as Logitech but an actual xc360e input device, meaning it detects a XBOX360 wired controller for Win 10/XboxPC

    Copying files to and from Windows is not that obvious. If you do not suss it, pm me.

    Well it opens the ES file explorer by itself and there is a option I found to copy file to and from windows. Very nice.

    Nox is Android 4.4.2, WAY out of date. Some newer apps will not run on it.

    It was easier imo on older version as you could simply cut and paste, but the native file explorer in NOX does it via menus which is more cumbersome. For reasons I do not understand, ES file explorer is more temperamental on new version showing the /mnt folders even though I have selected to view hidden folder and have root access. I thing new version is a bit buggy in places, as it crashes occasionally, but never did on older version.

    Are any of the emulators beyond Version 4 Kit Kat?

    I finally had a chance to try Nox. It's working fine. The one really good thing about it is that, although it appears to use a LAN address space different from the actual LAN the host PC is on (172.17.X.X for Nox versus 192.168.100.X for the actual LAN) for the purposes of using Chromecast casting from an app the "virtual LAN" is apparently properly bridged to the physical LAN. Bluestacks apparently doesn't think it's on a LAN at all -- the IP address it uses is the WAN ip for the PC host -- so it never discovered any Chromecast devices. Bluestacks has other versatility over Nox, but the network function that now works for casting, etc. is more important.
