Windroy (formerly known as WindowsAndroid) is a free program similar to BlueStacks App Player which can run the Android operating system from a window on your desktop.
At the moment, Windroy emulates the Android 4.0.3 OS, though does not provide immediate access to Google Play store.
In order to install applications with Windroy, you should have access to the actual APK files since this "device" is not a real phone and thus does not come with the official Google Play app.
The program is still in development yet does run apps smoothly and without much issue.. though you won't have access to audio playback such as those in games.
Though still in development, a more stable program to run APK files on your PC remains BlueStacks' App Player.
