Windows 10: Hyper-V error when creating virtual switch. Solved

    Hyper-V error when creating virtual switch.

    Hi this is my first post but I am really confused as to an issue with hyper-V

    Whenever I go to open the virtual switch manager, it says; The operation on computer 'DESKTOP-V1A0142' failed: Generic error. Is there anyway to fix this. I have not yet created any switches because it won't let me.

    Hi Nukeproof, welcome to the Ten Forums.

    First thing to check is that the Hyper-V Extensible Virtual Switch is enabled in your NIC's Properties:

    If it is totally missing click the Install button and install, it, you'll find it under Protocol:

    Install if needed, enable it and reboot and try Virtual Switch Manager again.
