I want to make an android app for the phone...installed vs2017 on a win7 machine with xamarin..

Question: Do I need to be running on win 10 for all of this to work right?...things don't seem to be working correctly...i.e phone emulator...connection to phone...

    vs 2017 installed fine. trying ro build and run the "first app" and "hello" sample apps..start it after build and the emulator pops up with just a black face...using a samsung android galaxy 8 phone trying to connect live player doesnt work...seems like things start and stop instantly..
