Is there a way to run Android emulator and VmWare Player at the same time on windows 10?

Im using Xamarin in VS2015 on windows 10 to build a cross platform app. And im using VmWare's VMPlayer to run a virtual instance of OS X to run the iOS emulator. VmPlayer doesn't work with Hyper-V turned ON and the Android Emulator doesnt work with Hyper-V turned OFF.

I was wondering if there is a work around that will allow both the VMplayer and the Android emulator to run at the same time without having to go back and forth turning Hyper-V on and off?

    Have you tried using the latest Microsoft Android Emulator? It runs on x86 for faster performance. I haven't tried it myself, but thought it might be more friendly with other MS technology.

    The latest one I have been using is Marshmallow (6.0.0) Android 6.0 - API 23.
    I'm not sure if that's the latest one available but, that's the one i have been using.
