Standalone Android version requires VirtualBox for some reason - it says that can't find it upon start (would like to test it with VS Android Emulator instead).
Comment 1 Sandy Armstrong [MSFT] 2016-02-19 15:20:12 UTC
Standalone Android requires XAP (which uses VirtualBox internally). I forgot to note this in the documentation.

VS Android Emulator support will come later.
Comment 2 Sandy Armstrong [MSFT] 2016-02-19 15:20:39 UTC
And by XAP I mean Xamarin Android Player: https://xamarin.com/android-player
Comment 3 Aaron Bockover [MSFT] 2016-05-26 12:51:51 UTC
Closing this as we support the VS emulator now.
Comment 4 Arpit Jha 2016-09-16 09:35:41 UTC
I have checked this issue, Now Workbooks require/support VS Emulator for Android on Windows machine.

Hence closing this issue
