Windows 10 virtual machines now available on Microsoft Edge Dev

Q: Windows 10 virtual machines now available on Microsoft Edge Dev

Today, we have updated the Microsoft Edge Dev site with major fixes and new features, including Windows 10 virtual machines with Microsoft Edge and a faster, clearer platform roadmap. With these features, we are excited to remove the ?Beta? tag from Microsoft Edge Dev, and will be redirecting modern.ie to our new home.

Test your site in Microsoft Edge with free Windows 10 virtual machines

Windows 10 virtual machines are now available with the latest updates to Microsoft Edge and the underlying web platform. With this release, we have automated the process we use to create the virtual machines, so future updates will be available more quickly as the platform is updated. By popular demand, we?ll also be supporting new formats for VMs, starting with Vagrant boxes (with VirtualBox) and QEMU. You can expect to see these starting in the coming weeks.

We have also updated RemoteIE to use the latest Microsoft EdgeHTML rendering engine inside Internet Explorer, which gives a very similar rendering experience to testing inside Microsoft Edge. RemoteIE continues to leverage Azure RemoteApp to enable cloud-based testing across platforms without the need to download virtual machines. We are also continuing to work on making Microsoft Edge available via Azure RemoteApp and will provide further updates as we make progress.

Bug fixes and improvements

This release includes substantial improvements to accessibility, including improved markup to make the site and tools work better with assistive technologies. We have also updated the Frequently Asked Questions page for the Windows 10 launch and included some new answers to common questions. Finally, many of our older Test Drive demos have been moved to our GitHub repository, including classics like Fishbowl and MazeSolver. We plan to move these to our new Test Drive site in the future, but for now you can experiment with the open-sourced copies on GitHub.

As always, we hope these changes are useful, and encourage you to try the new features out and share your feedback! We?re always listening on @MSEdgeDev on Twitter and in the comments below.

Hi there

Great stuff -- I'll see if I can convert one to VMWARE format. I used QEMU years ago -- thought it had "Died the death" -- when VMPLAYER couldn't CREATE VM's but only PLAY them QEMU was a great free tool in being able to create new VM's for VMPLAYER to work with.

Edit -- VMWARE format IS available in the download. !!!!




Anyway I'll post results of messing around with this piece of software if I can get it to work.

And -- Ms have images as well as for Windows - but MAC and LINUX TOO !!!! So Ms does believe that there is life outside Windows.

Microsoft Releases New Windows 10 Virtual Machines

Microsoft has released new Windows 10 virtual machines on the Developer Center, providing us with an updated arsenal of tools to code without the need for a license.

Specifically, the new virtual machines, which are available in Hyper-V, Parallels, VirtualBox and VMWare versions, come with an evaluation license for Windows 10 Enterprise Anniversary Update that will expire on May 21 this year,.

The new evaluation pack includes the aforementioned Windows 10 image, as well as Visual Studio 2015 Community Update 3 (Build 14.0.25425.01), Windows developer SDK and tools (Build 14393), Microsoft Azure SDK for .NET (Build 2.9.6), Windows UWP samples (Feb 2017 Update), and Bash on Ubuntu on Windows.

The company is also offering a non-evaluation version of the Windows 10 image, but this requires a license for the operating system, so additional costs would be involved. The pack has approximately 20 GB in size, and completing the download takes some time, and so does installation.

The UWP effort
Microsoft?s pack of virtual machines and developer tools are specifically aimed at those who want to join the universal app platform effort and create apps that can run on all Windows 10 devices. This is actually part of Microsoft?s push to bring more developers to Windows 10, as it wants universal apps to address the lack of apps in the Windows Store and thus tackle more than just PCs at the same time.

Microsoft Releases December 2016 Windows Virtual Machines

Microsoft has just released new Windows 10 virtual machines that are available right now on the Windows Dev Center either with an evaluation license or as licensed products.
The evaluation version of these virtual machines can be used until April 8, 2017, and include Windows 10 Enterprise version 1607, Visual Studio 2015 Community Update 3, Windows developer SDK and tools, Microsoft Azure SD for .Net, Windows Bridge for iOS and samples, as well as Bash on Ubuntu on Windows.

On the other hand, the licensed virtual machines come with Windows 10 Pro version 1607 (Anniversary Update), but you obviously need a license to use them. For everyone else, the evaluation version is just fine because it comes with the same tools without the need for a license. Nevertheless, they expire after a while.

The virtual machines are available in Hyper-V, Parallels, VirtualBox and VMWare versions, and are obviously shipped in very large packages since they contain all of the above. The VMWare enterprise evaluation version, for example, has 21.7 GB in size.

?Start coding sooner with a virtual machine prepped for Windows 10 development. It has the latest versions of Windows, the developer tools, SDKs, and samples ready to go,? Microsoft explains on the Dev Center.

The purpose here is to empower developers with the necessary tools to build Universal Windows Platform apps easily, so hopefully more of them would download these virtual... Read more

The driver is available on Windows Update since Tuesday together with a networking driver (which is working fine) when using VirtIO devices. I have always used the signed Red Hat drivers from the Fedora project, but those seem to get overwritten by the SUSE
drivers when selected in Windows Update. After a reboot, the operating system refuses to boot and throws an error in the lines of "no boot device found". Setting the virtual hard disk to use IDE emulation resolves the issue, but comes with a performance
penalty.
The only real solution so far is to remove the new SUSE driver and use the Red Hat driver again.
Apparently, other Windows editions are affected as well, specifically Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012 R2.
Any info if the driver will be removed for incompatible machines or if there will be an updates that fixes this problem? I assume the driver only works with selected KVM hypervisors (SUSE?).

Hi,

I am looking to set up some a few virtual machines. I haven't worked with this before, so this is new but I shouldn't need much more than a shove in the right direction.
I have two things I eventually want to do.

First off, what I want to do now, is set up a XP virtual machine inside a 64-bit Vista install on my desktop.

Eventually I want to set up a XP virtual machine inside ubuntu on my laptop, but I don't need to bother with that now.

-------------

On my desktop I have 4 GB of DDR2 ram and am running a core 2 duo E6750 @3.5 Ghz so there won't be any issues of resources.
How do I go about setting up the XP virtual machine in Vista?

Does anyone have any suggestions as to which free software to use? I had planned on using vmware but that is only because it is the only free one I know of.
Thanks!

But besides that. Why don't you use Microsoft Hyper-V instead? I use it for all my VM installations and it works really good!

Hi I'm considering getting a virtual machine program. My physical machine runs windows 7 home premium and the virtual machine would have windows XP pro as the operating system.

I'm considering VMware for the virtual machine software.

On my physical machine I am running McAffee suite provided as part of my dsl service.

My questions regarding the virtual machine are...

1) do you need an additional antivirus program running on the virtual machine, or would the antivirus/firewall on my physical machine protect the virtual machine.

2) If the answer is you need antivirus on both the physical and virtual machine, will there be any conflicts running the same antivirus program on both machines?

Okay this may be an odd question but I can honesty say I can not find the answer for it, possibly because I am the only tool who does it..... so here goes.

I have a VMware windows 7 installation on my computer, that works 100% fine. Now what I do with this machine is try to get viruses on it, then remove them. Ironically it proves to be harder to get them then remove them, but back to the subject at hand. I know there are rootkit viruses that can effect the boot sector of your HDD. So what I want to know is if running a VM, can I get such a virus and have it effect my actual OS? I am assuming NO as the OS is virtualized, along with the hardware. Now that I think about it, its not to hard to remove a virus on a boot sector so I guess this is more of a curiosity then anything else....
 

A:Question about virtual machines

Some malware are able to recognize virtual environments and keep themselves quiet when they are in a virtual environment, they wait until they are not in a virtual environment anymore.

Example :
You install a malicious screensaver in a VM, but you don't know it's malicious.
Because the screensaver knows it is in a VM, it acts like a normal screensaver.
The user thinks his screensaver is safe and installs it in his real OS.
Once the screensaver is installed and executed, it will do its evil job, like deleting your folder "My Documents".
If the screensaver has a boot-virus and/or rootkit, you are infected.
You can scan the screensaver with an AV-scanner, but AV-scanners aren't foolproof either, especially when it is a NEW malware.

Nothing is safe and malware-writers are also brilliant, at least some of them. The majority of malware-writers are stupid, they are responsible for the large quantity of malware on internet, not the "quality" of malware. I know quality is a bad word, but some malware(-writers) are smarter than others.
Stupid malware-writers copy existing malware and modify this copy a little.

Okay, I have a basic network setup at home. I have a Netopia wireless DSL router and connected to that I have a small network switch. In this room I have 6 personal PC's connected, all wired directly into either the Netopia or the switch. All of the PC's are running Windows XP Professional except for one, which is running Windows Server 2008.

On 2 of the personal PC's I have Microsoft Virtual PC installed and have a Windows Server 2008 virtual machine on each of them. So that makes a total of 3 instances of Windows Server 2008 on my network - one installed directly on a PC and the other two being virtual machines.

'Ello,

I am running Vista Ultimate 64bit and I was wondering what virtualisation software is there that will run on this so I can install other OSes to get some applications to work that will not run on Vista. These applications are only some very old games I like all I really need installed is Windows 98SE and Windows XP but I may use it to try out other operating systems as well.

I know of Virtual PC but it doesn't allow 64bit guest operating systems which at the moment isn't a problem but I may want to install one in the future, I don't really like the interface of VMWare and I tried Parallels but it gave an error that it won't install on a 64bit operating system. I was just wondering what others are there that people know of?

Thank you in advance, El Barto.

A:Virtual Machines for Ultimate 64bit

I think VMWare is the only intel based software that supports 64-but guests at the moment. Microsoft has been fighting hard in this space recently so I wouldn't be surprised to see the next iteration of Virtual PC support 64-bit guests.

I also think the adoption of Vista x64 will speed the process along. Memory prices are rediculously low and enthusiasts are loading up their machines with 4+ gigs of RAM only to see Vista 32 not recognize it all. I really think the move to 64-bit computing will pick up steam in 2008.

Hello, 2 months ago I built a new machine with a Gigabyte Z97X Gaming 7 motherboard and Intel Core i7 4790K. It is running Windows 8.1.

I have virtualization enabled in BIOS and Hyper-V disabled but, in some machines on VirtualBox or VMWare, i can't set it to use 8 cores instead the 4 physical ones. In other, it allows me to use it. At this time I could only set it to use 8 cores in a Windows 7 VM in VMWare.

I checked CPU capabilities with coreinfo and it says Hypervisor is disabled and the other two options are OK.

Did I forget to change some setting or something? I can't understand why sometimes work and sometimes not.

A:Can't set virtual machines to use hyper threading

Hi there

VMware Workstation 11 in the VMware settings for the VM you cans et the nr of processors - I think 32 is the max. !!! You don't need to set it in the Virtual (or HOST) Bios. Use the settings in the VM.

Cheers

Does anyone have any experience running a couple of VMs on the X1c with a i7-7600u?  I'm starting college this September and one of the requirements is to have a laptop capable of running two VMs, one Windows Server with AD services and a Windows client.  I realize the laptop is only dual core with HT so I don't expect any miracles, I just want to make sure it won't crawl to a stop as soon as I power on a couple of VMs.

Okay, so I know that the Windows 8.1 child monitoring system allows you to see what apps are used and what webpages are accessed through a child account, but can it see through Virtual Machine systems such as VirtualBox? Please try to answer these questions in particular:

-Can I see a webpage accessed through a VM?
-Can I see an app (from the Windows store or otherwise) executed through a VM?
-Can I see a webpage/program accessed/run through use of a shared folder in a VM?

I know I can just look to see if my child has used VirtualBox but he has legitimate reasons to be using it so I want more detailed info.

Thanks ahead of time.

Question on Running Virtual Machines: Sorry is this is in wrong section

If i run a Virtual Machine is windows 7, which is running Windows XP, and it connected to the internet, without any security updates or AV

Therefore that XP, becomes infected, Does the Malware/Virus affect my original Windows 7 - Can it come out of Virtual Machine and attack the Main OS?

Thank You

A:Question on Running Virtual Machines

No, Since a virtual machine is in a control environment any malware will not affect the host pc. I Know this since I got infected with malware in virtual machine and didn't affect my host PC.

Hello,
I need some help connecting multiple Virtual Machines to the internet. I have my main computer which is Windows Server 2008R2 that connects to the home router via the wireless network. My home router's DHCP gives off 192.168.1.XXX IP addresses. My Server has 192.168.1.200 as the static IP address.

I am trying to setup a lab for studying purposes and want to have different subnets for each other server I setup within Hyper-V. I have 4 virtual machines that I want to configure 192.168.0, 192.168.2, 192.168.4, 192.168.6 subnets. When I change the subnets I loose internet.

When I was studying for my 2003 certifications I remember that there was a way to setup the main computer as a RRAS server so it can act as a router to all the virtual machines. 2008 server is a bit different as far goes the UI and I have completely forgot how to do this since it has been years since I have done this.

Can anyone help me get this setup to work? I Want each virtual machine to have it's own subnet and to allow it to access the internet and internal VMs so I can replicate DNS and AD.

Thanks,
Synt4x
 

A:Solved: Virtual Machines and Different Subnets

I will solve my own question it seems.

1) I created four internal network adapters within Hyper-V.
2) I gave each network adapter the IP address on the subnet I wanted.
- 192.168.0.254
- 192.168.2.254
- 192.168.4.254
- 192.168.6.254
3) I installed the Network Policy and Access Services role within Server Manager
4) I Configured and Enabled Routing and Remote Access
- I chose custom settings and just checked off LAN Routing
5) I expanded the views of the role and the options below, right clicked on General under IPv4 and selected 'New Routing Protocol" and chose NAT.
5) Within the NAT section I right clicked and chose 'New Interface', I then started adding my Network Adapters.
- In my case I have to add 5 things under NAT
- 1) Private Interface connected to Private Network - Network Adapter Chosen 192.168.0.0
- 1) Private Interface connected to Private Network - Network Adapter Chosen 192.168.2.0
- 1) Private Interface connected to Private Network - Network Adapter Chosen 192.168.4.0
- 1) Private Interface connected to Private Network - Network Adapter Chosen 192.168.6.0
- 1) Public Interface connected to the Internet - Make sure you select 'Enable NAT on this Interface' - Also, this is where the Network Adapter I use for the internet on the main server where hyper-V is installed.
6) I assigned each Hyper-V Virtual Machine a NIC card by going to each of their settings and under Network Adapters giving the correct option.
7) Booted it up each ma... Read more

"Microsoft Edge", I was still close with my guess on the name like a month ago, haha.

Time to give it a another go at HTML5Test.com and see if the score improved.

Since an automatic Windows 10 update, over which I had no control, Microsoft Edge is not working - as described by others in this forum.

All my bookmarks and history have been wiped and I'm unable to perform web searches other than through Chrome, which I haven't used in the past so have no history, or through web addresses contained in emails - which is how I managed to log into my Tech Support Guy account.

I feel this is totally unethical as not only am I being forced to use Chrome, which is not my choice, I have lost a great deal of information, links and web addresses that are of great importance to me.

At no time before, after or during the process was I warned that I would lose this facility and all the history that went with it.

I am beyond words and would appreciate some advice.
Thanks - to anyone - in advance.

I can not close Microsoft Edge.  It works everytime I start computer but will not close with the X.  I have to go to task manager to end task.  Then it will not work again until I restart computer.  Then it works fine until I quit using it. Example!  I go to check email etc.  Then I just want to use computer off line to type a letter, then I try to go back and edge does not open.

Microsoft Edge comes out as a promise to finally end the bad era of Internet Explorer. It?s a browser built from scratch with new UI, new engine and many other promising things. On the speed test front, Edge now on par with or sometime faster than its competitors. However, one thing that keep people from changing to Edge is the lack of extension. Microsoft promised it would come shortly after the July launch of Windows 10. Now the feature is pushed further into early 2016. And no extensions means no ads blocking at this time. Ads blocking has become an important thing and for laptop/tablet users, it?s crucial because these ads are eating away your battery. While waiting for Edge?s extensions, I?ll show you how to use Hosts file as a way to block ads.
DISABLE FLASH FIRST
Yes, Flash is fading away. Even Adobe now recommends using HTML5 instead of Flash. While ads nowadays also mostly in HTML5 but a large number of them still in Flash form. Disabling Flash will take out some annoying ads. I disabled Flash for a long time and have noticed almost nothing different in term of functions. So here?s how to disable Flash in Edge.
Click the ellipsis button on that top right and select Settings
Scroll down and click ?Advanced Settings? button
Switch off the toggle ?Use Adobe Flash Player?
