      When building on a Windows system that has Windows Phone Emulators installed LiveView seems to always pick the vEthernet (Internal Ethernet Port Windows Phone Emulator Internal Switch) network connection meaning that devices are unable to connect to the liveview server as this is an internal network connection used solely for emulators


      I believe that ipv4 address for this adapter is always


      To workaround this issue, disable the switch in Network and Connections.

      1. Go to Control Panel
      2. Open Network and Sharing Centre
      3. Click Change adapter settings
      4. Right click vEthernet and click Disable

      This will mean you will not be able to build for Windows Phone Emulators, be sure to enable this when you are finished

      Steps to reproduce
      1. Ensure you have Windows Phone Emulators installed and that you see the vEthernet switch in Network Connections
      2. Enable LiveView from Studio
      3. Build for Android
      4. Disable the vEthernet switch in Network and Connections
      5. Build for Android
      Actual result

      At step 3 the LiveView connection will not be successful

      At step 5 the LiveView connection will be successful

      Expected result

      The LiveView connection should be successful in both cases
