Hyper-V 2012 host servers

Question: Can AVG 2012 be installed on Hyper-V 2012 core servers.
Answer:
AVG 2012 can be installed but there are some modifications that need to be made.

The only issue that there can be is the msvfw32.dll file missing right after the AVG installation.
Without this file, no graphical application is able to start. After adding this library to the system (windows\system32),
all graphical applications should run without any issues.

When using the Hyper-V virtual machines on Windows Server based computers, it is necessary to exclude some folders
from AVG scanning. This will make sure that the virtual machines run properly. Following erorrs may be reported otherwise:

The requested operation cannot be performed on a file with a user-mapped section open.

(0x800704C8) VMName' Microsoft Synthetic Ethernet Port (Instance ID{7E0DA81A-A7B4-4DFD-869F-37002C36D816}):
Failed to Power On with Error 'The specified network resource or device is no longer available.'

(0x80070037). The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or an application request. (0x800703E3)

Please exclude the following from being scanned:

Default virtual machine configuration directory (C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Hyper-V)
Custom virtual machine configuration directories
Default virtual hard disk drive directory (C:\Users\Public\Documents\Hyper-V\Virtual Hard Disks)
Custom virtual hard disk drive directories
Snapshot directories
C:\Clusterstorage (if Live Migration is used together with Cluster Shared Volumes)
\\localhost\C$\Windows\System32\Vmms.exe
