First, a single WhatsApp account can’t be used on both PC and smartphone simultaneously (not at all through Android emulators). So you need to create separate accounts that mean two different phone numbers (as the phone number is used as ID).
Once the application is ready then it will send a message to your mobile phone. First it will try doing this automatically (but it works only on a smartphone). Once you see message option then enter a phone number to setup account with and within few seconds a confirmation code will receive.
Enter that code back in application and account will be setup. Now you can add contacts manually from going into Menu/Options and choosing Contacts from there.
Note – If you wish to use same WhatsApp account on phone and PC then I got a different and much easier solution for you. I’m adding it down here now and guess what, it doesn’t require any installation at all.

The whole user interface is so easy to understand and quick to learn to go through that you won’t find any issues or need any guide to help you get going on the first try. Everything is intentionally kept simple and inspired by older messaging applications we have been using on our earlier featured phones.
It can be used primarily to send unlimited numbers of texts with any number of persons in your contact (but they all needed to be using this application itself). Apart from texts, you’re even allowed to share photos, videos and voice notes.
Voice notes are done by recording a recording and then sharing it. All the conversations are kept together according to names of your contact. The best feature here is that you don’t need to worry about adding a contact manually.
Every contact in your phonebook of your device is automatically imported within and all people from there who are having an account with this application are added without any fuss.
