Is there a way to run an Android Unity game in Windows? [on hold]

By | June 19, 2018

I was wondering, given a generic Unity game built for Android (with no desktop version), if I could somehow run it on windows (not in an android emulator) by using the windows version of mono.

I tried replacing the Data folder of a windows game with the Managed folder from the Android apk but got this error:

Failed to load PlayerSettings (internal index #0). Most likely data file is corrupted, or built with mismatching editor and platform support versions.

Is there some tool I can use to change the platform of a third party unity game in order to play it ?

I'm not an unity developer myself but my concern is that games could use features not supported on desktop...
