    Has anyone here heard of a way to update the HyperV Client within Win8 Pro to Server 2012 standard of features?Primarily I'd like to use a Win8 client machine to host a VM with RemoteFX (DX11 GPU) support to another client machine, within a small office environment.

    Note: Actually I've just looked up the possible answer for this here:

    Unfortunately it seems that Win8 Pro and below does not support the hosting of this feature. Does anyone know of a way to bypass this limitation?

    You need a pretty beefy computer to do it with a supported GPU to do host-side rendering. You can't just hack it together and you need to put in a VDI guest on that beefy computer to do RemoteFX. RemoteFX is not an enhancement of RDP alone.
