#Windows10 – Virtual Machines with all the tools you need to create #UWP Apps (you only need a Windows 10 Pro licence)


I’ve got some amazing and funny plans for today: publish a video about Hololens development or edit and publish a new podcast for NTN. However, some time ago I make a big mistake installing my Windows 10 Dev environment and now I have to pay the price to reinstall everything from scratch.


So before start I remember a few days ago I read an article in the blog of Windows that I thought that it could save me a few minutes:

The Windows Development Team released a series of Virtual Machines with Windows 10 Pro and all the tools necessary to create Universal Windows Platform Apps, updated September 30, 2016.

And the truth is that while I could configure my computer in a weird way to take advantage of these VMs, my experience tell me is best to install the OS and tools from scratch.

So, after my monthly backup Sunday start the process and it’s a shame because besides saving me the Windows 10 installation, also the following software you may have installed in one step:

Bonus: The VMs come ready to be used in different virtualization platforms: Hyper-V, Parallels, VirtualBox, and VMWare.
