Can't get Hyper-V to work - "video remoting was disconnected" RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm totally new to Hyper-V. I've used VM's in the past but never Hyper-V. I googled free VM today and was psyched to find that Windows 10 already comes with Hyper-V. So I installed it and clicked on Quick-Create which seemed to download a copy of Windows 10 and then finished, but I can't connect to the VM. I created a new new virtual switch, set it to use External Network and then selected the wireless card on my laptop. It seems to start fine, but I can't connect to it. I get the message: Video Remoting was disconnected unexpectedly that flashes on the screen and then the window gets smaller and tries again in 20-30 seconds. This just repeats.

    I googled the message and was surprised not to find anything good. Others must have experienced this...

    You've got into Hyper-V just when there may be a brief bug in the latest release. I've noticed it a lot lately too, but it stopped when I removed the old Direct X driver or whatever it was that is no longer supported. During my investigations, I also found that resetting my network drivers also helped. I posted the solution in the thread below.

  • By the way, another way to get in is to switch OFF "enhanced session". Other posts explain that it's a security thing, where the local account on the VM has to have a password.

     

    Also, you can just hit cancel/escape when the settings window pops up, just before connecting.
    Then it connects in basic mode (fixed display size, no clipboard, etc).

     

    At least you can log in that way.

    You'll find many similar posts, if you use the search box above.
