    The connection bar It's the blue bar identifying the VM on the host at the top of the full screen VM.
    Select the Hyper-V view -> full screen to see it.
    OK, now I got it. You can pin the connection bar or hide it, click the pin button to hide the bar, bring pointer on top of the windows to show it again when hidden and click the pin button again to keep connection bar visible:

    Have you found a good use for the Hyper-V Virtual Machine Connection?
    It requires elevated privileges on my machine and all it seems to do is connect to an existing VM.
    I can do a lot more with the Hyper-V Manager.
    Virtual Machine Connection (VMC) is the program to play (run) your virtual machines. When you launch a vm from Hyper-V Manager, it opens the vm on VMC by default:

    You run your virtual machines locally using VMC this way or over the Remote Desktop Connection (RDP).

    Within your network, you can run any vm located on any Hyper-V server using the separate VMC app. In that case you launch the VMC app on the computer you are using to connect to a VMC server in your network:

    A personal subjective opinion: I find the VMC quite useless, I use RDP to connect both to local (on the same computer) and network virtual machines.

    Using RDP is easy.

    Allow remote connections on your virtual machine, boot the vm from Hyper-V Manager without opening the VMC window for it:

    When the manager shows the vm is up and running, open RDP, give the vm computer name or IP and connect:

    Click Use Another Account if the default account shown on top is one not existing on the vm:

    Give the username as VM_COMPUTERNAME\USERNAME, in my case in this example AGM-W10VM01\Kari, give the password, click OK:

    Thanks,

    Basically, you're saying to start the VM in Hyper-V but connect through RDP.
    Good details on how it's done.

    I think Hyper-V connects through background RDP services anyway, but it's interesting that sound works using RDP to connect instead of Hyper-V

    Using the VMC to connect you do not get all host resources.

    With RDP remember the basic rules. Talking about your Hyper-V virtual machines and Hyper-V host computer, all this apply:

    • Your Hyper-V host is the RDP client
    • Your Hyper-V guest vm is RDP host
    • Any edition of Windows can act as the RDP client (computer you use to connect to another computer over RDP)
    • Only Professional /Business and better editions (Vista / 7) and Pro and Enterprise editions (8 or later) can be RDP host (computer you connect to from another computer over RDP)

    Ergo: You can use Windows 7 Home Premium to connect remotely over RDP to Windows 8 Pro but not the other way around because Home Premium cannot host a remote session, cannot be an RDP host.

    EDIT:

    Screenshots to show what the above means. I have Windows 10 Tech preview and Windows 7 Home Premium virtual machines running. Using the 7 Home Premium RDP client I can connect to 10 Tech Preview without issues:

    But from 10 Tech Preview as RDP client I cannot connect to 7 Home Premium because Home Premium cannot host a remote session:

    Is there a way to import a VMWare VM?

    Although I have personally never done it as I do not use VMware, I know it is possible. There are several converters available which can take a VMware VDMK file and convert it to VHD to be used in Hyper-V.

    Kari; the tutorial is great and easy to follow. I am having problems with the message about hypervisor not running I am using a Dell Optiplex 760 with Intel E6500 processor. VT-x is turned on. I had been running windows 10 TR and vmplayer 7.0 all was fine. then decided to try your tutorial and so I installed TR 9841 and so far I cannot get to the point of installing the vm machine. When I set up the vm I chose to let it set everything up. then when I go to start I get the error about the hypervisor not running.

    I saw your both posts only now, about the issue and that you have solved it. Would be nice to know how you solved the Hypervisor issue?

    late last night after trying to set up a vm without an operating system I saw an error about not having second level addressing or processing?
    Since this is an older Dell and I had replaced the processor to get VT-x I assumed that this was another requirement not present in the Intel E6500 processor.

    Great guide Kari, I have been meaning to try Hyper-V out for quite a while, just installing Windows 10 on it now.
