Android Player - VMware Fusion

Hello! Will it be possible to use Xamarin Android Player with VMware Fusion instead VirtualBox?

    The possibility is there. However, it is hard for Xamarin to distribute VMware as it is not OSS. Alternatively you can install another X86 Android distribution in your VMware fusion and use that.

  • It's not necessary to distribute VMware. I.e., look how it works in Vagrant: Vagrant uses Virtual Box by default but there are separate plugin which allows use VMware Fusion.

    Well it is in a pretty early stage, so I don't know of the plans for the Player. You could try reach out to them and hear if that is something they have on the road map. You can't be entirely sure they read this forum, so try contacting them per mail as well.

  • I'll mail them, thanks for the idea!

  • I did not get reply from Xamarin since my last post date. Anybody have news about plans?
