Q: Does Microsoft support application X on Hyper-V?

A: Microsoft doesn’t validate or support third-party applications on Hyper-V. Supportability of applications running in a virtual environment that is hosted on Hyper-V (or any other hypervisor) needs to come from the application vendor. Microsoft supports specific OSs on Hyper-V and also has support statements on Microsoft services and applications on Hyper-V, but if you’re looking for information as to whether Microsoft supports a particular non-Microsoft application on Hyper-V, you won't get an answer. Microsoft doesn’t provide support on other people’s software. Such help would come from the application vendor. Provided the OS the application runs on is supported by Hyper-V, then from a Microsoft perspective, you would be good to go.
