Windows Phone Emulator is doing a complete OS boot…

If this starts happening whenever you launch the Windows Phone emulator


Can I suggest following the advice from Eric Fleck on this thread.

  • Delete the emulator saved state files (C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\XDE)
  • Reinstall the January Update
    • Open an elevated command prompt
    • Execute msiexec /update WindowsPhoneDeveloperResources_en-US_Patch1.msp


That fixed it for me.
