    I have Windows 10 Tech Preview installed on three physical computers, clean install on each. Not a single one of those three can use the vmconnect6.3.exe in Hyper-V\6.3 folder.

    Version 6.3 in Windows Technical Preview:

    I don't want to start an argument about this, everyone is free to do and try whatever they decide. For me it is quite clear that version Virtual Machine Connection 6.3 does not work on Windows 10 Technical Preview as you suggested. Windows 10 Tech Preview requires Virtual Machine Connection 6.4 (vmconnect.exe) which is located in Windows\System32 folder:

    Interesting: Checking this a bit more, I found out that the vmconnect6.3.exe file in Hyper-V\6.3 folder is the exactly same version than the 6.4 version in Windows\System32 folder.

    Anyway, for reasons unknown to me I have tested the one in Hyper-V\6.3 folder on three computers with totally different hardware and it refuses to work on any of them. I really see no point to argue, the vmconnect.exe inWindows\System32 folder works flawlessly.

    No one is starting an argument here. I edited my post as I missed the local machine part. The one I posted works perfectly if connecting to a 2012 r2 server running HV, you were correct it does not work on the local, I forget not everyone is running in an enterprise environment, my bad.
