Great tutorial, going to try this soon.
Thank you! hope it comes in helpful
Excellent tutorial. However, what happens when you do NOT get the Display/Local Resources dialog to show up? I followed everything here and simply cannot get this dialog to appear when I click Connect.
I do see a menu item on the VM in the View menu called Enhanced Session, but it is grayed out.
Hello RoachSlayer, and welcome to Eight Forums.
Turn off the virtual machine to disconnect it, then see if you are able to uncheck it's Enhanced Session option.
Did that. well, I am trying to turn on enhanced session, not off. But I get no such options or abilities as described above. VM is off.
Also I should point out, as mentioned originally, the Guest Services box is checked in the Integration Services settings (when VM is off) and still no dialogs appear when I then connect to the VM. And Enhanced Session Mode is checked in Hyper-V Settings for server and user as shown in this tutorial.

What OS do you have installed to the VM?
I'm afraid that only the following guest operating systems support enhanced session mode connections:
- Windows Server 2012 R2
- Windows 8.1

ok, thanks. wow, it simply just did not occur to me that MS Hyper-V can't support simple things like, well, Windows. I mean, I can use VM Ware or Parallels and get access to USB ports, for example, on the VM client, with Win 7, 8, Ubuntu, and on and on. Very disappointing.
