    I searched the sky and earth to open WhatsApp from my PC without the need to use a SmarPhone with Android or an emulator. But it has been in vain.

    Has anyone succeeded in doing it ?. Some module maybe. I have seen a module that allows to run Android applications in Linux, but in Windows there will be?

    The reason why it works on Linux is because Android is just a fancy version of linux, I'm afraid your only choice is to get an emulator

    That's the same as WhatsApp Web where you'll be asked to scan a code. The same thing happens with the Windows 10 version. Why would they put a WhatsApp application in the windows 10 store of more than 100MB to have to scan a code forever attaching to a physical device?

    Well, that's another problem I've had a long time ago. I have Android Studio, Nvidia CodeWorks, Bluestack, Genymotion, VirtualBox, among others ... and I have not been able to load a virtual system because it always tells me that I do not have virtualization enabled. But of course I have it enabled from the BIOS, I do not know why it does not recognize me. I use a Motherboard with a Bios Asus UEFIS.

    If someone knows why this happens to me, I thank you.

    I use Windows 10, I only have Windows Defender. How can I identify which tool uses virtualization? The only service that I see that consumes enough resources is "AntiMalware Service Executable"

    If you want to use WhatsApp on a PC, but also don't have a phone number.

    1. Download Bluestacks (I prefer NOX) and the WhatsApp app.
    2. Register a free TextNow account (it gives you a free throwaway number for WhatsApp).

    Basically, WhatsApp with anonymity if you're talking to lots of people online and don't want to share your info (personal phone number) with a big WhatsApp group. B-)
