VMWare Workstation Player on Azure VM for testing
I had a request to run VMWare Workstation Player on an Azure VM for some testing and labs. Challenge accepted!
Azure VM Standard E4s_v4 running Windows 10 2004 Enterprise
Installed VMWare Workstation Player 16.0 free for non-commercial use
Tried to spin up a VM, but i got error for hyper-v conflict.
to solve it:
Extract to a local folder open an administrative PowerShell in this folder
execute: .DG_Readiness_Tool_v3.6.ps1 -enable
open again an administrative PowerShell in this folder
execute .DG_Readiness_Tool_v3.6.ps1 -disable
execute bcdedit /deletevalue hypervisorlaunchtype
execute bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off
(ignore all error messages from DG_Readiness_Tool_v3.6.ps1)
Finally the VM at the VMWare Workstation Player started and I managed to setup and run a Windows 10 VM.
