    Does anyone have this running on a hyper-v … able to confirm if the current beta build is enhanced session compatible?

    Not sure what you mean by enhanced session but I am using hyper-v using remote access with no problems.

    Hyper- is compatible, so my guess is the enhanced session manager is also, as it is used through that facility - but, just surmising.

    Yes enhanced sessions are a very new hyper-v feature with a somewhat awkward interface… to the best of my knowing only the latest server 12r2 and windows 8.1 builds support it.

    @Sonny, could you fire up your windows 10 (remotely) for me and press the view tool bar option… is enhanced session grayed out like it is in this screenshot mate?

    I don't have the normal Win 10 Tech Preview install anymore in Hyper-V but I do have
    Windows Server Technical Preview Build 9841 running in Hyper-V and enhanced session mode seems to run fine. That would be the equivalent of the initial version of Windows 10 Tech Preview, just the server version.
    I configured my settings according to this page here http://www.virtualizationadmin.com/articles-tutorials/microsoft-hyper-v-articles/management/using-virtual-machine-connection-and-enhanced-session-mode-windows-server-2012-r2.html
    Both in Hyper-V manager and in the VM settings and it seems fine.

    ussnorway, I could not find view tool bar option but was able to find enhanced session and it was not grayed out. In fact I clicked on it and right now it is working fine. I am running Build 9879.

    Thanks mate!

    p.s. You need a tick in toolbar to see the toolbar as my screenshot above shows... don't stress about it.

    @Trouble thats a nice read... thanks for posting it.
