Hi Team,

We have installed Vmware workstation in Azure VM (Size: Standard D4s v3) and trying to deploy/create one VM(Windows/GNS3) on top of it, but were getting error : Hyper-V is not enabled.
We have enabled the Hyper-V in Azure VM and re-tried but now we are facing below error while starting the VM(inside vmware):
*VMware Workstation and Device/Credential Guard are not compatible. VMware Workstation can be run after disabling Device/Credential Guard. Visit for more details.
Can you please let me how to resolve same.

    Hi Rajan,

    At this moment you cannot run Vmware Workstation on Azure VMs, Virtualization applications other than Hyper-V are not supported in Hyper-V virtual machines, and are likely to fail. This includes any software that requires hardware virtualization extensions.

    Hope this helps.
