Disabling Hyper-V on windows 11

Hi,

I just installed windows 11, and for some reason there is a hyper-v detected which is preventing me from running some programs. Unfortunately, the process to disable it is different from windows 10 and doesn't work for windows 11. Does anyone know how to disable hyper-v?


I reached out to microsoft for support, and they basically denied help, bc they aren't trained to use it yet....


Thanks!

This looks like a new Windows 11 debacle...

I have problems running Intel XTU just because of Hyper-V on Windows 11.

I can only see Intel blaming Microsoft and Vece versa...

Fortunately, I can live without XTU... but it is sad to see other people's complains...

I just recently upgraded my laptop to windows 11 and I'm having the same problem, I cannot run my games. It says Hyper-V is enabled, I went to my control panel tried it that way, tried power shell ,and there were 2 other ways listed on Bing, and i tried them all to turn Hyper-V off and none of them worked. Ever- since i upgraded to windows 11 Hyper-V was enabled but I cannot turn it off. Does ANYONE know how to disable HYPER-V ? PLEASE HELP

Hi,
Hope this will help:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/windows-client/application-management/virtualization-apps-not-work-with-hyper-v

Please note that Windows 11 is a new version and there’s not many official documents about it yet. Please try the method in the above link,and hopefully it would be supported soon.

Thanks for your understanding.
Best regards,
Danny

Hello,

The process for Windows 10 will still work with Windows 11 because here the problem is due to Hyper-V Hypervisor and not directly depend upon operating system. Only one virtualization software can use hardware virtualization extensions on your system at a time. Hence, disabling the Hyper-V Hypervisor should also work with Windows 11. For more information, you can refer:

Let us know if this helps!

It does not help.
Hyper-V is not activated in Windows Features, and msinfo32.exe still shows "Hypervisor detected".

It does not help! Can you test it on Windows 11 Surface Pro+, please?

@VrajMistry-8569 I encountered a similar issue when trying to install Intel HAXM. My hyper-v was inactive looking at the windows features, yet system info showed "a hypervisor has been detected". The fix was by disabling the Virtual Machine Platform. VM platform was required when I installed wsl. However, even with the VM platform disabled, my ubuntu wsl is still working fine.

Hope this help.

This does not work for me - any other suggestions? both are unchecked and still get "cannot run under hyper-v". I'm not a programmer or even close so have no idea what this is, but I don't want it and can't get rid of it

This has been bugging me for months. Thank you so so much.

I had to disable "Windows Hypervisor Platform" in addition to "Virtual Machine Platform" before the hypervisor was disabled.

Thanks for your post! I'd been trying to get nested virtualization working for most of the day and this unblocked me.

This worked for me. At first I tried to uninstall Hyper-V with no luck. Then I found this and unchecked the Virtual Machine Plateform. And It got uninstalled. Then I installed Intel HAXM successfully. Thanks.

Did not work for me. Disabling the VMP did not change anything.

In my app (for handicapped people) I rely on a 3rd party component which requires a special license for virtual machines.
It checks for "Hypervisor".
And because of your bug, where msinfo32.exe says that Hypervisor was detected, my app does not work on hundreds of computers.

The 3rd party component thinks (and it's right because of Hypervisor is detected by API) that it's on a virtual machine, and the license for that is not valid.

Windows 11 says that Hypervisor is detected, and you give no chance to fix this.

The same problem is also blocking me.

The problem is present on all "Windows Surface 7 Pro +" computers which come with Windows 11 pre-installed.

The fact that hyper-v is detected makes it impossible for me to use some programs.

I have not found any way to disable Hyper-V.
Hyper-V is un-checked in Windows Features, and Virtual Platforms are also unchecked / inactive.
Still msinfo32.exe reports that "Hyper V is detected".

I am unable to disable Hyper-V.
The problem is that other programs check if Hyper-V is enabled or not, and they only work if it is NOT enabled.

I have also tried to activate / install Hyper-V and Virtual Platforms, and then disable them again, but that didn't change anything.
The suggestions on how to disable Hyper-V on Windows 10 do not work in this case.

Hi,

I have the same problem and I think it has something to do with the preinstalled version of windows 11.
I think we all have the Windows 11 Home edition and we need the Windows 11 Pro edition. 145 € extra costs.
It is unbelievable that you buy a Surface for 699 € and it has a crippeld Windows 11 Version installed.

I tried all the other options. But nothing works.

This is so sad. I wanted to buy my kids a computer were they can learn programming. But the Lego Boost App is only working on Android or iOS(I should have understood this sign) But I thougt OK, I will install VirtualBox and everything is fine. Maybe it is time to change to iOS (or Android). I have never heard of similar problems.

I have the same problem.
I can not uninstall Hyper-V on my new "Windows Surface 7 +" tablet with Windows 11 preinstalled.
It shows the message "a hypervisor has been detected. features required for hyper-v will not be displayed".
I have tried any possible solution that I could find on the internet. Nothing worked.

As @RammHase-0983 and others said that,
"Hyper-V is not activated in Windows Features, and msinfo32.exe and other apps still shows "Hypervisor or Hyper-V detected", the problem is Windows Defender use a/some virtualization-based secuirity that makes Hyper-V run/enable silently. You have to disable Memory integrity in Windows Secuirity > Device Secuirity > Core isolation. It worked for me.

Pardon my poor english!

Hello RomanRokon 8745,

thanks. Yes, this solved the problem for me as well.

But it is kind of insecure ...

In case nothing else here works for anyone happening across this post, I ended up disabling Microsoft Defender Device & Credential Guard and all other virtualization-based security features and it worked for me after trying all of the other suggestions first (Window11).

There are a number of sketchy tutorials but I used this script:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/identity-protection/credential-guard/dg-readiness-tool

...with these parameters:

DG_Readiness_Tool_v3.6.ps1 -Disable -AutoReboot

Note, you are disabling security features and all that implies. It is not recommended.
