    64-bit Windows 10 Pro build 17017

    Windows 10 virtual machines now available on Microsoft Edge Dev


    Today, we have updated the Microsoft Edge Dev site with major fixes and new features, including Windows 10 virtual machines with Microsoft Edge and a faster, clearer platform roadmap. With these features, we are excited to remove the “Beta” tag from Microsoft Edge Dev, and will be redirecting modern.ie to our new home.

    Test your site in Microsoft Edge with free Windows 10 virtual machines

    Windows 10 virtual machines are now available with the latest updates to Microsoft Edge and the underlying web platform. With this release, we have automated the process we use to create the virtual machines, so future updates will be available more quickly as the platform is updated. By popular demand, we’ll also be supporting new formats for VMs, starting with Vagrant boxes (with VirtualBox) and QEMU. You can expect to see these starting in the coming weeks.

    We have also updated RemoteIE to use the latest Microsoft EdgeHTML rendering engine inside Internet Explorer, which gives a very similar rendering experience to testing inside Microsoft Edge. RemoteIE continues to leverage Azure RemoteApp to enable cloud-based testing across platforms without the need to download virtual machines. We are also continuing to work on making Microsoft Edge available via Azure RemoteApp and will provide further updates as we make progress.

    Bug fixes and improvements

    This release includes substantial improvements to accessibility, including improved markup to make the site and tools work better with assistive technologies. We have also updated the Frequently Asked Questions page for the Windows 10 launch and included some new answers to common questions. Finally, many of our older Test Drive demos have been moved to our GitHub repository, including classics like Fishbowl and MazeSolver. We plan to move these to our new Test Drive site in the future, but for now you can experiment with the open-sourced copies on GitHub.

    As always, we hope these changes are useful, and encourage you to try the new features out and share your feedback! We’re always listening on @MSEdgeDev on Twitter and in the comments below.

    Hi there

    Great stuff -- I'll see if I can convert one to VMWARE format. I used QEMU years ago -- thought it had "Died the death" -- when VMPLAYER couldn't CREATE VM's but only PLAY them QEMU was a great free tool in being able to create new VM's for VMPLAYER to work with.

    Edit -- VMWARE format IS available in the download. !!!!

    And -- Ms have images as well as for Windows - but MAC and LINUX TOO !!!! So Ms does believe that there is life outside Windows.

    Naturally! But they simply will not admit that openly! The only thing I would have to boot live from a data recovery stick in order try any of these out on the present distro in use for those. Paragon has something else for Windows that come in handy when playing with the "Outside of Windows" domain you might be interested in. http://www.paragon-software.com/home.../download.html

    That's good for mounting the ext2 ,ext3, and ext4 flavors while I installed the distro on ext5! Couldn't have better security for that! As for VM Player have the latest right before the rename VM Player Pro become Workstation Player still being a trial version the 7.1.2 that had been up until mid August is still found at vmware player 7.1 free download

    Since I have that on presently I can immediately give any of them a good lookover. One thing to note here however is that if you have enabled Hyper-V in the Control Panel>Programs & Features optional turn on and turn off section you will need to go back in and turn Hyper-V off if planning to use VM Player. Neither VM Player 7.1.2 or the Workstation Player 12 now seen at the VM ware sight will install on 10 if Hyper-V is enabled. Found that out here fast enough when going to put 7.1.2 back on when removing the Workstation Player 12 trial ware. That's seen in both Windows and the other guy's OS form at free

    Still haven't had a chance here as of yet. I did need to update the download information a bit however since the previous post for he en sonic page until discovering what had been changed on the VM ware site as far as getting the free version and not simply the latest trial version of the Player. Some seem to be confused at which is what by how the download pages saw new layouts. For the latest free to try Workstation Player 12 previously named Player Pro free to try at home or commercial license they have that set as the default option at https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/fre...duct_downloads

    For the latest non commercial 7.1.2 free Player version you have to click on the two dropdown options list to select the Major 7.0 and Minor 7.1.2(latest) options to end up immediate on another identical page. https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/fre...duct_downloads

    Now for anyone still working with the 32bit Windows you would want the Major 6.0 Minor 6.0.7(latest) seen at: https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/fre...duct_downloads

    The older 5.0.1 and 5.0.2 versions are now long gone and will not even install on 10. Those came out a few years back for 8. I downloaded the 7 with IE 10 and now downloading the 8.1 with IE 11 option there with the VM Player option. Will be taking a look at 8.1 before finally adding in a new 7 VM. Just like the XP Mode these are only good for 90days and they recommend you make a snapshot image of the VM if you have the option for that.

    And in order to use anything from that point on you will need to raise the screen res which then pushes all that off to the sides! When clicking on the MS store app if not IE which won't connect through the set up apparently when seeing 8.1 Entrerprise with IE 11 selected you will see the error message "Your scree resolution is too low to run this app" meaning all the wording there with the codes is pushed out of view by MS intent!

    The download itself includes the data file needed to use the Open machine option when at the home screen in VM Player which then sets up the VM in a couple of minutes. You still have to into the hardware settings to tweak things there as you would with any project of your own. The "slmgr /ato" activates the 90 trial persiod once you are connected online from the VM itself you select which is one the typical problems I have seen besides the XP Mode so far only solved by running things on Hyper-V where you first create the new "NetWorkAdapter".

    Hopefully these will work ok once I re-enable that again since it had to be disabled in order to run any VM ware option! I think it was with Virual Box I could open up four VMs at the same time or three with the XP Mode running all at the same time until I ran out of resources back before building the present main case with 16gb of memory in!

    I had 4gb in the old Vista case used for testing the 7 beta and RC builds and then went up to 8gb on the next build for 7 when the old case died back in 2010. First getting the present build together the issue of the wrong brand of 8gb came up seeing 8gb of the present brand and then adding two more 4gb dimms in afterwards ruled out ever running into the "out of resources" problem!

    You don't have to go to softronic's freeware site to get the non commercial 7.1.2 player but simply have to learn how VM ware changed the layout at their site. Workstation Player 12 will the first thing you see being the latest but the commercial version they are promoting at the moment and need to bring down both the "Major Version" and "Minor Version" dropdown options lists to select either the 64bit only 7.0, 7.1.2(latest) or the 32/64bit combination 6.0, 6.0.7(latest).

    When arriving at the Alll Downloads page seen at downloads you will need to scroll all the way down until you find the next to last item listing under "Desktop and End-User Computing" to select the "Download Product" link for VMware Workstation Player not Workstation Pro.

    Then once you arrive at the 12 page you simply bring down the Major Version list first to make that selection and then over to the Minor Version for the latest of either. The 6.0 32bit/64bit actually came out on July 2nd after the 7.1.2 64bit did on June 15th. free
