I have installed Xamarin and vs2017 on windows server 2016. Getting the below error as below. Please let me know how to resolve this.
Note: The current Os version of windows server 2016 is 1607 and Hyper is also enabled.

"launching the android emulator android_accelerated_x86_oreo on hyper-v needs windows spring creators update (Redstone 4) or newer installed."

    Xamarin is not currently supported here on QnA. They're actively answering question in dedicated forums here.

    Two options upgrade the OS, or if your are not using hyper-v for anything but the android emulator and have an intel processor you can uninstall hyper-v and install the haxm drivers to speed up the emulator.
