Cannot create a Hyper-V virtual switch

Jacek 1 Reputation point

I can't create virtual switch in Hyper-V. I get an error: "Error applying Virtual Switch Properties changes. Failed while adding virtual Ethernet switch connections. The system cannot find the file specified."
I tried to reinstal Hyper-V function, I tried to use netcfg-d command, I tried to reinstal network card driver. Nothing helps.
I found easy fix:

But when I try to install it I get message that this Easy Fix is not for my system.
I have 64-bit Windows 10, version 2004

Please help.

    Please check the following thread:
    Hyper-V - Unable to Create External Virtual Switch
    Please note: Information posted in the given link is hosted by a third party. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy and effectiveness of information.

    It states in the doc you give: Original product version: Windows 10 - all editions, but the fix cannot work for your system.
    For now I suggest you use the builtin Windows Feedback Hub app within Windows and provide feedback about this issue so that Microsoft can start working on this issue.

    Thanks for your time!
