Nested VMware Virtual Machines in Azure Dv3/Ev3 Virtual Machines? [Resolved]

Is there a way to run Nested VMware Virtual Machines on Azure DV3/Ev3 Virtual Machines? I got error message: VMware Workstation and Hyper-V are not compatible. Remove the Hyper-V role from the system before running VMware Workstation.

No you cannot do this. Nested Virtualization in Azure only supports using Hyper-V. Any other virtualization providers will not work.

There is also a collaboration between Microsoft and Cloudsimple to run VMWare workloads on Azure.

I have never tried it though so can’t say if it works good or not.
