RT Windows , as everyone knows, is capable of running applications such as ARM and signed by Microsoft. All but changed at the beginning of the year when some Clokr managed to get hold of a flaw which was then exploited to design a jailbreak tool to run unsigned applications. Looks like another, so it is a door that is open and it is precisely because of this passion that has managed to create the first emulator to run x86 applications on terminals running Windows RT. So of course, all is not perfect yet and the emulator in question is not compatible with all programs on the market, but it should any self-interest of those who have a home area RT.
Finally, the RT area but also all the shelves, or rather all hybrid machines, running Windows RT. For indeed, this emulator has been designed to work on all configurations of this type , so it is possible to enjoy the end of Microsoft and its partners. But how does this emulator anyway? In reality, it is quite simple since it acts as gateway between the instructions used for x86 applications and instructions used for applications such as ARM.
The downside is that this emulator is still in its infancy and it is not able to recognize all instructions. However, some tools are already supported and this is precisely the case with 7zip of WinRAR or even Heroes of Might and Magic 3 . The list should naturally expand with time and we already know that the developer of the tool is working on the instructions used in Age of Empires, Command & Conquer, Jagged Alliance 2 or uTorrent. In other words, all machines running Windows RT should soon be able to run these games and applications.
Great, it says you may be wondering how to set up this emulator. Well actually, the procedure is quite simple:
- Get the emulator to address .
- Launch the MSI file and install the program on your device.
- Click "Launch x86 program" from the menu.
- Go look for the executable software you want to run (.Exe).
- Click the "Ok" button.
- Wait a few seconds for the application launches.
With no RT Windows machine at home, I have unfortunately not been able to test this solution then please do not hesitate to share your feedback for the benefit of everyone.
