      Hey Y’all,

      Here’s one for the books. Two machines both running W10 1809.

      In Windows Optional Features you’ll find Microsoft-Hyper-V
      HyperV
      on the other machine you’ll won’t find Microsoft-Hyper-V but rather VirtualMachinePlatform as the optional feature.
      VirtualMachinePlatform

      This one had me scratching the ole noggin for a while as I’ve displayed the windows version on the desktop and both reported: Build 17763.rs5_release.180914-1434.

      However upon running WinVer I discovered:

      Winver8920

      Winver137000

      Just gotta love the Microsofties don’t you?

      May the Forces of good computing be with you!

      Looks like the difference is between the April and May updates.

      Home versus Pro editions.

       

      On Pro you get a real Hyper-V which allows you to host VM’s using Microsoft’s engine.

      On Home you get Windows Hypervisor Platform which is a set of API’s required by some third party virtual machine engines – but not much else.

      More info about the latter here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/virtualization/api/
