Home » New emulator image for Windows 10 Mobile Creators Build almost complete

Great news ahead for app developers eager to start testing apps for the Creators Update coming to Windows 10 Mobile: a new ROM was recently released for Visual Studio. Build 15063 will allow its users to successfully simulate the Creators Update patch.

As far as the Creators Update for Windows 10 Mobile goes, this build is considered as being one of the lasts before the update finally goes live. Being so near completion, many think that it will provide accurate source material for the developer reading and simulations.

Creators Update is casting a shadow

The official release of the Creators Update for Windows 10 Mobile is believed to be heading the platform’s way sometime during the month of April or in the months following. This puts developers in a bit of a tight spot as they are expected to begin testing for their apps. This will allow them to correctly measure and adapt to the different variables that occur when an update of this caliber is being pushed out.

Visual Studio 2015 will be necessary

Visual Studio 2015 is required to undergo the simulation and will allow developers to put their apps through real-world scenarios and interactions. This acts as a powerful tool and is available within the Microsoft Emulator for Windows 10 Mobile kit.

App prototypes can be in dire need of an isolated environment which will allow them to properly receive a debugging as well as series of tests. These are possible even without the need of an actual physical machine. Through simulation, the same results as a physical device can be achieved.

Requirements

However, there are certain requirements that need to be fulfilled in order for computers to be able to handle the stress put upon them by the testing process. For starters, there needs to be at least 4GB of RAM available. There is also need of SLAT (Second Level Address Translation) and DEP (Data Execution Prevention). Of course, these will need to be hardware-base considering there will also be hardware assisted virtualization involved in the process.
