Install hyperv cmdlet on workstation


I have a script that starts new HyperV VM’s on a remote server using powershell

I want to run this script on my desktop, however I get the following error.

I can’t figure out how to install the new-vm cmdlet on my workstation

I am very new to powershell, and don’t do much with windows.

How can I install the cmdlet New-VM on a Windows 8 machine?


Also tried the following.

I see hyperv tools in the following command

Update 2

I almost got it installed, but it gives this error:


Got it installed. The powershell cmdlet has parents that can be installed by adding -all.

You will need to reboot before the cmdlet is available.
