    You have enough legacy stuff in XP, I agree it might be better to try that in Hyper-V.

    Hi there

    I'm going to leave the XP machine currently -- I'm Happy with the W10 VM running on HYPER-V under W8.1 -- I'll now see what happens with a REAL W10 and enable HYPER-V to see if I can re-create the previous error.

    (I know also that VMWARE networking didn't work at all on a HOST W10 running a W10 VM (both x-64 enterprise before).

    The RDP thing is good -- can leave the VM's running in the background with minimal resource consumption when not in use.
