Hyper-V Program Manager
We have recently published a new version of the Hypervisor Top Level Functional Specification for Windows Server 2012 R2 / Windows 8.1. You can grab a copy here:

Now, when you first open this document and start looking through it – you are probably going to think to yourself “Good grief! This is much too detailed for me!”. And yes, it is a very technical document. It is essentially a guide to how to build your own virtualization solution on our hypervisor. That said, a couple of times a year I direct people to read this document so they can get answers to questions such as:
There is a lot of good information in there – so I would recommend taking the time to read it through.
That doc you linked has got revision marks and comments in it.
I would like to thank you for this document. I've been waiting for it since Hyper-V 2008. Finally I have the information I need. Great job!
Any one knowns how to get livehypervisor's offset address, plz help me thanq...!!
Jeremy Hagan -
Thanks for the heads up, the document has been updated to not include the revision marks / comments.
Thanks for the spec!!
I'm not able to find "v4.0" from searching the microsoft site: the search.microsoft.com/.../DownloadResults.aspx
Is this somehow not published to be available through the regular site (I only see v2, v3.0a) and an older one from 01/04/2009?
