Doctor Scripto

Summary: Here is the answer to the second question in Mini-Scripting Games 2014.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question On your laptop running Windows 8.1, you are running Hyper-V.
           You have heard that there are cmdlets that let you manage this.
           You open Windows PowerShell and type the following command:


Absolutely nothing comes back. But you know you have several virtual machines on your computer.
Why does nothing return?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer The Hyper-V cmdlets require Admin rights. Therefore, you need to open the Windows PowerShell console
           with Admin rights. Right-click the icon and select “Run As Administrator” from the action menu.
           Unfortunately, these cmdlets do not return any error messages if you try to run them without proper rights.
