    Brian Ehlert: I have answered many questions about this in the forums, but I keep forgetting to document it. It took my wife asking me how to remote her Smart Card into a Hyper-V VM this morning that caused me to think about it again.

    If you are using Hyper-V, you have already discovered that there is no support for remoting local devices into a Hyper-V VM. This is by design.

    Hyper-V is an enterprise level hypervisor, like ESX, like XenServer, like VirtualIron, etc. None of those platforms support remoting devices either.

    To guarantee a division between the parent and the children (host and its VMs) this separation must be maintained.
