How to validate Hyper-V hypervisor

Hi, I'm sure this has been asked a few times, but I am new to Turbonomic and am trying to get my Hyper-V server connected.  I am getting the dreaded "Validation Failed" message and I also get "Error executing query SELECT Version, Caption FROM Win32_OperatingSystem".


I tried the steps from these articles, but it still does not work.

Unable to validate Hyper-V target error – Turbonomic Help Center 

The specified item was not found. 


Seems the documentation is out of date as I am using version 5.7, even the help video on the download page is out of date.  For the first help article above, the command fails for  Throws a javac exception 16.  In the second help article, I adjusted the registry settings as instructed.  Neither fixed the problem.

The Hypervisor is running on Windows Server 2012 R2.  The windows firewall is turned off.  My workstation that I am using for web connection has latest Adobe Flash installed.  I am using latest Mozilla Firefox web browser.


Why doesn't this product work out of the box with Hyper-V?  Seems like there are a lot of hurdles to go through and it still is not working.  Very frustrating.
