Before proceeding with this procedure make sure the virtual machine is powered off.

For the application to work correctly, you must modify the number of processors of the virtual machine and edit secure boot settings.

To edit the settings of a virtual machine:

  1. Start Hyper-V Manager.
  2. In the main window of the program, in the Virtual Machines table, select the virtual machine that you deployed from the ISO file.
  3. Right-click to open the context menu and click Settings.

    This opens the virtual machine properties window.

  4. In the Security group of settings, in the Template drop-down list, select Microsoft UEFI Certificate Authority.

    This is applicable only to second-generation virtual machines.

  5. In the Hardware group of settings, select the Processor section.
  6. In the Number of virtual processors field, enter the number of virtual processors.

    The minimum recommended value is 8. You can enter a greater value if you need higher performance from your virtual machine.

  7. If you need to connect the virtual machine to multiple network segments, add additional network adapters:
    1. In the Hardware settings group, select the Add Hardware section.
    2. In the workspace, select Network Adapter and click the Add button.

      The new network adapter will be displayed at the end of the list in the Hardware block.

    3. Select the new network adapter in the Hardware block and use the Virtual switch drop-down list to select the network segment that you want to connect to.
  8. Click OK.

The number of processors for the virtual machine is modified.
