The Windows Phone Emulator wasn’t able to create the virtual machine: Something happened while creating a switch: Xde couldn’t find an IPv4 address for the host machine

Busy with some Windows Phone 8 development. Got this off the bat when starting the emulator. Not sure if it is a fix all but the following worked for me:

Open Hyper-V Manager

Goto Virtual Switch Manager

Remove all internal switches and apply

Add new internal switch called “Windows Phone Emulator Internal Switch” – Note that any other name does not appear to work
