Hyper-V Program Manager
If you have installed the Windows 7 beta and want to use it to manage Hyper-V you will need to install the Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 beta. These can be downloaded from here:
Once you have installed them you will need to still setup your client and server appropriately (I recommend using HVRemote). One nice thing though is that the Windows 7 Hyper-V mangement UI can be used to manage both Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 beta installations of Hyper-V.
Is it possible to install the admin console for SCVMM 08 in Windows 7?
Thanks for this info Ben! Do you know if these will be included with Windows 7 when it is shipped?

I do not know how to install it - but I know if you have it installed on Vista and then upgrade to Windows 7 - it will continue to work.
Brad S -
To be honest - I do not know :-)
I will ask around.
Just a crazy idea but is there anyway we can run Hyper-V on Windows 7?
You can run Hyper-V on Windows Server 2008 R2, which is the server equivalent of Win7
Hrm.. doesnt work, i installed the mgmt tools, but still no hyperv manager, and i cant install the hyperv manager for vista.. well cos its for vista. I'll try compatibility mode now
