    Creators Update and Hyper-V - Upgrade Configuration Version


    Hello all,
    I have installed Creators Update and in Hyper-V Manager, when I click on "Upgrade Configuration Version" on any of my VMs, nothing happens.
    I am running Enterprise edition.
    And I think it is because of that I can't use new features of Hyper-V like windows resizing/scaling.

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    I'm thinking of re-installing Hyper-V role on my PC but would like to avoid that if possible

    Re-installing Hyper-V role did not help.

    Using powershell command Get-VMHostSupportedVersion I can see new version available (which is 8.1).Click image for larger version.

    And if I create new VM using command New-VM -Name test -Version 8.1, new VM is created with version 8.1:

    But I still cannot upgrade my existing VMs to new configuration version.

    I have clean install of 10 Pro Creators Update.

    I just upgraded my 6.2 and 7.1 VMs and they upgraded to 8.0 not 8.1. Upgrading 8.0 does nothing (same as you).

    Resizing works for me but only in Enhanced Session mode not console which is still fixed resolution.

    I can't used enhanced session mode as I need to use Cisco AnyConnect in my VMs and it will not work if it thinks I'm connected via RDP so basically I can't resize either but I suppose this is how it is supposed to work (according to here anyway)

    You can now resize Hyper-V windows in Enhanced session mode.
    What Windows for IT Pros

    EDIT What is that IsDefault True for 8.0 in Get-VMHostSupportedVersion? Perhaps that is why it upgrades to 8.0 not 8.1. I don't know how to change it though.

    I just checked and I can indeed resize VM's window in Enhanced mode (I don't remember I was able to do that yesterday )

    This means whenever I create new VM in Hyper-V Manager, it will use version 8.0 configuration.
    8.0 was here even before Creators Update.

    8.1 is available, as my screenshot above shows. I also tried upgrading using powershell command, but still no luck.

    You are now making an issue about something that really is not an issue. See your own screenshot one more time, you will see that default configuration version at the moment is 8.0. The 8.1 shows value FALSE for IsDefault:

    Current configuration version is always shown as TRUE.

    You only got the version 8.1 for your new VM because you told your PowerShell command to make it 8.1. If you leave that out, the new VM is created as 8.0 because that is at the moment the default configuration version.

    No issues here.

    Can't Upgrade Hyper-V Config Version


    I just upgraded to the Creator's Edition as well and there is a button saying "upgrade configuration version" but when you click it nothing happens and the version stays at 8.0. It seems like this is a bug? Anyone have ideas? Thanks for the help in advance.

    No it is not a bug as already told in this thread. Configuration version 8.0 is current version in Windows 10 version 1703 build 15063. Upgrading configuration version does nothing because you are already using latest version.

    Well it may not be a bug. But why would the upgrade config version appear in Hyper-V after updating to the Creators Edition and then the button not do anything. Doesn't make much sense if you ask me.

    Of course it makes sense. When you import virtual machines created in older versions of Windows 10 and Hyper-V, you need to upgrade configuration version to guarantee best possible functionality.

    That I could see. However the button shows up for all my VMs that are currently 8.0
