Adding Virtual Machine Sensor - Error 8004100E



When I attempt to add a Hyper-V virtual machine sensor, I receive the following error:

8004100E: The namespace specified could not be found.

Anyone have a possible explanation for this?

Can you please update to the latest version, 12.4.7, does the issue then persist?
