WINDOWS 10 PRO does not have a Hyper-V administrators group RRS feed

  • Question

  • I upgraded from windows 10 home to windows 10 Pro. I tried to run an emulator from VS 2015 but got an error, " unable to add user to hyper-v administrators group. Exit code 2220". When I look under computer management/Local users and Groups I don't see an option for Hyper-V administrators. How can i get this resolved. Any advice is appreciated.

    Please see the anoher post where you can find the answer.

    In short from Ben Armstrong:
    The problem is that if you are running a version of Windows that does not support Hyper-V - and you upgrade to a version that does support Hyper-V - we fail to create the Hyper-V administrators group. Home --> Edu and Home --> Pro are the two common paths here.

    a) You can do a clean install of Pro or Edu without an upgrade. Painful but viable.

    b) You can run Visual Studio "as administrator"

    c) You can join the Windows Insiders - this bug has been fixed in the latest flight of Windows
