    So you mean that Windows 10 Settings app should only show Check for Windows updates option when there are actual updates available and remove that option from Settings when you are up to date, or various software should not have Check for updates option available when you already run the latest version? That context menu options and Hyper-V manager GUI options should be different for each VM?

    Don't take this too personally but of all pointless complaints about Windows and its software I've heard this one goes easily on Top 5 list

    Sounds like your taking this too serious. Your entitled to your own opinion though

    Exactly the opposite: I can't take a non-issue like this seriously!

    In the past when the button to upgrade hyper-v config version appears after a major update, clicking on it always upgrades the config version and no they shouldn't remove the check for updates button when there aren't any updates. This is completely different. It's not asking me to check for an upgrade version, it's asking if I want to upgrade them now.

    Who cares - you click on it and nothing happens. You can have lots of VMs and you want Hyper-V to be more intelligent to conditionally hide the button based on what info it gets. Why bother - it just adds more programming complexity to Hyper-V interface and more risk of bugs? Flexibility comes at a price!

    Hi there

    OT but sometimes the OPPOSITE is true -- when an application is DUMBED DOWN too much e.g some of those 1-click easy install things then it becomes almost impossible to fix or re-do if something goes wrong.

    However I agree with the previous post in this case -- HYPER-V works fine the way it currently does.

    KISS is good so long as everything is not TOO simple.

    Cheers

    Slightly off topic, but why is 8.0 the default anyways?

    I don't know.
    You cannot change it to 8.1 although it is available, as you can see in screenshot in my first post.

    I openly admit that regarding what amuses me, I am a bit pervert. This thread is a good example of that.

    What do you guys expect to achieve if you could now upgrade to 8.1? What would be the benefits?

    We are still using configuration version 8.0 as column "IsDefault" in cmdlet Get-VMHostSupportedVersion shows (value TRUE). It is the default.

    Version 8.1 is still shown as FALSE, it will most certainly become new default after one of the near future cumulative updates:

    Update on Hyper-V Configration Version


    This is from a Microsoft employee on TechNet..

    "Hey all,

    Thanks to everyone for reporting this bug. We are aware of the underlying issue and a fix is in the works.
    The upgrade button is incorrectly showing up in Hyper-V Manager for virtual machines with Configuration Version 8.0, when upgrade is not really available. The default VM configuration version for Windows 10 Creators Update is version 8.0. Version 8.1 is currently only accessible through PowerShell or WMI during virtual machine creation (Windows Server 2016 does not support version 8.1 and won't be able to run these VMs)."
