Running emulator directly
I haven't worked with this toolchain or Hyper-V before. How do I run the emulator directly w/o deploying a specific application to it in Visual Studio?
I see it in Hyper-V and am able to run it there, but it lacks the skin and input handling. I tried running xde from command line and specifying the vhd, but that lacked the skin. Sorry for the noobery >_<
