You’re in luck!  Microsoft is catching up with VMware and has finally added the ability to pass through USB devices.  You will need a recent version of Hyper-V, and be warned that it’s not as polished as VMware’s offering.  But, it does work!

You need to enable “Enhanced Session Mode” on your HAast virtual machine.  Once you have done so then you can pass through USB devices.  If you would like some step-by-step instruction on how to enable this mode, here is a good post: https://www.nakivo.com/blog/install-ubuntu-20-04-on-hyper-v-with-enhanced-session/

As more that 90% of our customers using virtualization use VMware, we can’t offer technical support for the above yet.  But if this becomes more popular then we will include instructions in our installation guide / website.
