The Anniversary Update is not an emulator-friendly OS, according to the latest user reports. BlueStacks users are complaining they can’t get their emulator to work after installing Windows 10 version 1607 on their machines.

Bluestacks is one of the best Android emulators for Windows, allowing Windows users to run Android applications and games on their Windows devices. Although Windows users can request compatible apps from Android developers, the latter is not really interesting in Microsoft’s platform. In other words, the best way for Windows users to experience Android apps is by using emulators.

Users are complaining BlueStacks won’t open in Anniversary Update

I use the Bluestacks app (an android emulator) on my Surface Pro 3.  It works great – or at least it used to.  After build 1607, it will not open and my best efforts cannot resolve the problem.  Does anyone have a suggestion on how this might be fixed?   I use this app a lot and am considering uninstalling the latest build.

For the time being, uninstalling the latest Windows version and rolling back to the previous OS version seems to be the best solution. Uninstalling and then reinstalling BlueStacks doesn’t solve this problem for all users, although some were lucky and managed to get their emulator to work after uninstalling it.

In case you really need an Android emulator, there are plenty of emulators for Windows you can choose from, such as Droid4x, AMIDuOS, Andy, or Windroy. Read the description and select the emulator which meets your needs.
