    Running a VM on a VM (Paperspace)

    minusatwelfth Novice

      I'm currently renting a Paperspace VM (a cloud vm service) and it's running Win Server 2016. When I try to start VMWare 14 on it, I get an error: "VMware Workstation and Hyper-V are not compatible. Remove the Hyper-V role from the system before running VMware Workstatio"

       

      I have tried various methods to disable/remove Hyper-V but the error message still persists (Windows Features says "Hyper-V(Not Installed)"). . At this point I'm thinking maybe the Paperspace VM itself is running on Hyper-V technology or something.

       

      What are some possible solutions or alternative setups? Would it work on a Win 7/2008 Host VM? Or a Mac OS VM?

       

      What I'm trying to do is run a graphics test program 24/7, on a cloud computer. But the thing is, it needs to have fairly large, static screen resolution (not anamorphic as my monitor is small), and Windows 7. So I figured the only way to do this is a Vm-inside-VM. If there is some other way, I'd be glad to know it.

       

      Thanks!
