Windows 10: RemoteFX Video remoting was disconnected

    RemoteFX Video remoting was disconnected


    Hi,
    I know this is quite common error with Hyper-V, but neither of these solutions helped.
    I have password on my guest VM account. I tried to disable Enhanced Session Mode but this had no result.
    I even tried changing NIC settings like here but this didn't help either.
    What can I do then?
    My VM image was downloaded from here (IE 8 on Windows 7)
    My host OS is Win10 x64 Pro.

    Enhanced mode is only available for Windows 8 or later and Windows Server 2012 R2 and later guests. It can't be used in Windows 7 or earlier guests.

    So, good. It has no impact and I see no other causes for this issues. What other steps can I try?

    Do we have a misunderstanding here? Your guest, the virtual machine, is Windows 7. It can't use enhanced mode. It is not an issue, there's no fix, there's nothing you can do.

    You can use Remote Desktop Connection to connect to your Windows 7 virtual machine instead of Hyper-V virtual machine connection.

    It can't use enhanced mode
    Does it mean that it can't use RemoteFX as well? The problem is not in Enhanced Mode but in RemoteFX.

    RemoteFX display drivers can be used on Windows 7 hosts. RemoteFX gives a Windows 7 host better graphics but only 4:3 resolutions. To get widescreen 16:9 resolutions, or to get sound on Windows 7 guest you need to use Remote Desktop Connection.

    I didn't mention 4:3 or sound anywhere. I just want to use RemoteFX on Windows 7. How?

    First, you need an attitude change. I am very sorry I have tried to assist you and answer your questions, sorry that I mentioned the restrictions in using RemoteFX and virtual machine connection, and sorry I mentioned how to work around those restrictions.

    I honestly thought that you have at least basic knowledge of Hyper-V and how to use it. Apparently I was wrong. It had made this much easier if you had mentioned in your first posts that you have very limited knowledge of Hyper-V.

    With your attitude, I have basically no interest to assist and reply your posts any more but as I already started, I will answer this one more question:

    You add RemoteFX display drivers in virtual machine settings selecting Add hardware > RemoteFX 3D Video Adapter, then selecting maximum number of monitors, maximum resolution and amount of dedicated video memory:
