I'm trying to enable Hyper-V Hypervisor by checking the checkbox. When I try to run a virtual machine I get a message that hypervisor is not running.
When I check the settings, Hyper-V Hypervisor is not checked
What can be done?

    Hello @vigivigi

    Thanks for posting your question!

    Did you deploy it from Azure Marketplace or on-premises?

    It seems that Hypervisor is not installed or something like that. The snapshot is below.
    Which way can it be (re)installed?

    This is not Windows Server so Install-WindowsFeature is not present.
    So, I used Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature
    In vain

    By the way, it just occurred to me.
    Once it used to work. Then I had to use Vmware Player.
    So I disabled WSL2 and installed Vmware Player.
    And now I can't get WSL2 working. Could it be because of Vmware Player?
    Uninstalling it didn't help. Could it be that the uninstaller doesn't clean up everything?
