Virtual Machines

Microsoft has released an update for its virtual machine dev environment. The February 2017 edition has all the latest Windows, developer tools, SDKs, etc. prepped for Windows 10 development.

The VMs come in Hyper-V, Parallels, VirtualBox and VMWare flavors. If you just want to try out Windows 10 and UWP, use the free evaluation version of the VMs. This will expire after a pre-determined amount of time (05/21/17).

Following Virtual Machines are available as Evaluation:

However, if you want a VM that won’t expire, choose the licensed version and add your Windows license key. If you don’t already have one, you can buy a new Windows 10 Pro license (EN-US only).
