Hyper V doesn't work! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello! 

    I am trying to develop a Windows Phone application but I have a problem with the emulator. Hyper V gives me the following error:

    I go to start -> Hyper-V Manager -> Virtual Machines tab -> Right click on Emulator 8.1 WVGA... -> start. It says: Virtual Machine Emulator 8.1 WVGA... could not be started because the hypervisor is not running.

    I mention that a few days ago I had to install vMWare Workstation and it didn't work because the hyper-V was already installed and there was a kind of conflict between hyper-v and vMWare. So, because I had to install urgently vMWare, I uninstalled a few components of Hyper-V (Control Panel -> Programs and Features). 

    I didn't know that it is an operating system component.

    My question is: can I repair Hyper-V? Is there a way to make it work again? (other than reinstalling the Windows?)

    Thank you respectfully.
