I have an Ubuntu VMWare VM   Not available in Virtual box) .   I was trying to run it as a VM within an Azure VM  (Windows 2016 DC).  But for some reason, I can’t open it in VMware workstation ( 14 & 15)  .
   The error I get is “VMware Workstation and Hyper-V are not compatible. Remove the Hyper-V role from the system before running VMware Workstation”   .  But the  hyper v role is not installed (  even greyed out in roles)
  Googling gives this issue is Windows build related  ( may have nothing to do with Azure)  and could not see a real fix
