After recent Windows 10 System update (I am using Insider Preview), my Xamarin Android Player (XAP) refused to work. Everytime I tried to start the emulator, it will prompt error.
Since I don’t know where the log file is located, I just run the VM from VirtualBox. This time, I got more informative error message.
Details of my system:
- Windows 10 Insider Preview. Build 1433.rs1_release.160422-1940
- VirtualBox 5.0.20 r106931
- Xamarin Android Player 0.6.5
From the error message, it seems something wrong with the VM’s network option. Looking into VirtualBox’s network settings, I don’t see anything amiss.
The network settings are already follow the recommended values. Perhaps we can find something in Windows’ network settings (Win-R, ncpa.cpl, ENTER)
Hmm…VirtualBox NDIS6 Bridged Networking Driver strangely is not checked. Could this be the cause? Let’s just check that and try to start the XAP again.
It works! Heng ah! 😀
