Hyper-V – Check that the Virtual Machine Management service is running and that you are authorized to connect to the server

Recently I couldn’t connect to Hyper-V on my local Windows 10 install. It had all been working fine and is only used to host some testing VM’s. I had recently performed a Windows upgrade, although I had also been messing quite a bit my my machine too.

The VM’s themselves were running but I just couldn’t access then via Hyper-V Manager.

Following a little Googling, running the following from an admin control prompt fixed the issue immediately.

MOFCOMP %SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsVirtualization.V2.mof
