Many users deploy LANGuardian using VMWare hypervisor both to monitor internal (Virtual traffic) and external network traffic i.e. from a physical switch.
Currently Hyper-V does not support Span traffic.
Therefore at present LANGuardian cannot be deployed on Hyper-V.

Yes, it is possible to install LANGuardian on Microsoft Hyper V (Windows Server 2012 Standard).

Should you require instructions to install LANGuardian in a Hyper V environment, please contact

When deployed in a Hyper V environment, LANGuardian will capture and analyze traffic only the virtual network. 

We cannot pass SPAN traffic through the Hyper-v Virtual Switch Environment - Microsoft state this is by design!
