For Windows 10 Pro and up, will there soon be a replacement for RemoteFX in Hyper-V?

Hello,

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this particular question, but I noticed that RemoteFX has been somewhat deprecated in recent Windows 10 updates, as you cannot attach a RemoteFX video adapter to Hyper-V virtual machines anymore. It says somewhere that Microsoft is working on a replacement, but there's been no discussion as to what that replacement will be or when it's coming to Windows. Does anyone here happen to have a clue? Sorry again if this isn't the right place ask.

Thank you.

Hi ,

Windows Server Hyper-V use Discrete Device Assignment (DDA) as an alternative. However, for windows 10, DDA is not support.

As far as I know, Microsoft has not published a replacement for RemoteFX in windows 10 hyper-v so far, I would suggest we could wait to see if any documents would be published in the future.

As a workaround, you might try to add it via Powershell:

1) Check your Host GPU (You need RemoteFX Compatible GPU Card and Remote Desktop Virtualization Host role)

Get-VMRemoteFXPhysicalVideoAdapter

CompatibleForVirtualization: True

Enabled: True

2) Enable/Disable Host GPU for RemoteFX vGPU

Disable/Enable-VMRemoteFXPhysicalVideoAdapter

3) Add RemoteFX vGPU to your VM:

Add-VMRemoteFx3dVideoAdapter -VMName <vmname>

4) Open VM Settings dialogbox, you can configure RemoteFX vGPU.

5) Start VM

Here is a thread discussed before , please have a look:
