Allow/Support USB port redirect from physical host to virtual machine
Please finally allow physical USB port redirection to a virtual machine. I know this would limit high availability of the virtual machine but sadly some applications/hardware still require com port communications.
I totally agree. It seems it is not possible to passthrough a USB device to guest running on the host.
I had to look for a software tool that will accomplish this and found: https://www.virtualhere.com/
It is a shame to require external software for such a basic requirement. This should be implemented into Hyper-V. If Microsoft does not want to develop something like that on their own, they should buy the company or license their solution which seem to work very well.
