Xde couldn’t find an IPv4 address for the host machine

When you look at the forum http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13149509/windows-phone-8-emulator-error-something-happened-while-creating-a-switchOpen the Hyper-V from the start menu, and open the Virtual Switch Manager. Remove any existing switches, and try make a new virtual switch with a connection type set to internal” did not work for me.

“Go into Hyper V. Go into the Virtual Switch Manager. Create a virtual switch called “Windows Phone Emulator Internal Switch” Make it’s connection type Internal.” this work but in additional I removed all the virtual switch and left only “Windows Phone Emulator Internal Switch”.

    I stumbled across this resource and found the following solution:
    1. Open Hyper-V Manager – Virtual Switch Manager and create virtual switch called “Windows Phone Emulator Internal Switch”. Make it’s connection type “Internal”. I did not remove any existing virtual switches.
    2. Open “Network Connections”. Right click “vEthernet Windows Phone Emulator Internal Switch” and select Properties. Deselect “Deterministic Network Enchancer” and click Ok.
    3. Run Emulator and it should work.
