    Eric has provided a way to shutdown any Windows-based system, but I'm a bit confused by your question.  If you are running VMware Workstation, where is Hyper-V coming into play?  Are you running it as a VM under VMWare workstation?  If so, that is not supported.  Though you can install it in a virtual machine, it will not support the running of VMs.  Besides, VMware workstation should have a way to shutdown its VMs.

    And in addition to the command Eric provided, you can also use the PowerShell command Stop-Computer.
