Kitematic and Hyper-V


(Phoenyx33) #1

I’m not sure how this should go but may I suggest that the installer “Not” install Kitematic on systems using Hyper-V since it only works on systems using VirtualBox? Having it installed on Hyper-V systems makes people think that it’s broken.
Thank you for reading my post.

I’m not sure what you mean. Admittedly I’m not running the latest versions at the moment, but I’m using Hyper-V and Kitematic without issue. Has something been broken?

Every time I try to run it, it says it needs VirtualBox to run. And
virtualbox crashes if Hyper-V is turned on. At least on my pc’s anyway.

Yeah, you can’t use VirtualBox if you have Hyper-V enabled. But all I do is start Docker for Windows, wait for the VM to start, then fire up Kitematic and everything works
