    Virtual network is not created in Hyper-V


    Hi guys,

    I enabled Hyper-V feature in Windows 10 but unable to create a virtual switch. I tried to create private and internal types of virtual switch but every time the process stuck on "Applying changes".

    What could be the reason of that?

    Thank you.

    After you set up your virtual switch in virtual switch manager do this:

    To connect to the internet with no wireless, open the Network and Sharing Center on OS (not Hyper-V,) open Change Adapter Settings, right-click on Ethernet Adapter, and check EVERY box under this connection uses the following items. Then click OK. For a while it will be identifying and then it will change to Unidentified Network. The vEthernet connection will say network. I am not sure exactly when to do this, but I did this before I started the OS install.


    Also, a very important point to remember is ALWAYS USE A PASSWORD WITH HYPER-V!!! If you don't you will get booted out in seconds!

    Reinstalled OS, installed VMware Workstation and then turned on Hyper-V feature. After that, virtual switches are created successfully. I have no idea what was that.

    Just one question. I need periodically switch between Hyper-V and VMware Workstation so I turned off hypervisor using bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off command. However, when I need to switch to Hyper-V I get the error that says that hypervisor is not enabled. So, I'm forced to use bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off command and restart my computer entirely.

    Is there any other way to solve this issue without restarting computer?

    Thank you.

    Wait, you have both VMWare and Hyper-V installed? That's not a supported configuration, and you should have received errors by doing so. You can't have two hypervisors on the system.

    Yeah - this is a real PITA. I like to autologin in my VMs for convenience.

    It does not happen with VMWare.

    To start with, that is only true if using Enhanced Mode. Using normal mode there are no issues in using an account with no password set.

    That being said if setting up a password for a user account is such a pain in the you know where, why don't you simply add no-password users to Remote Desktop Users group:

    When a user belongs to this group, no password is needed even when using Enhanced Mode. In screenshot Hyper-V vm clearly in Enhanced Mode (#1), with a no-password user signed in (#2):
