XDE Exit Code: HypervisorNotRunning when running Visual studio android emulator

Tonight i got stuck with this small issue for which I spent about 2 hours to figure out the fix.


When I try to start VS 2015 Emulator for Android it failed to start with the following error


“XDE Exit Code: HypervisorNotRunning”

Make sure that your system supports virtualization and you have Virtualization technology “ON” in your BIOS

Start cmd.exe with Admin rights and type


“bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype auto”


Restart the system and now try starting the emulator and it should start.


Hope it helps!! 🙂
