By default on Windows Server 2012 R2, the new way of connecting to virtual machines (Enhanced Session Mode) is disabled.  This is a per-host setting.  To enable the new Remote Desktop mode:

  1. Open Hyper-V Manager
  2. Click Hyper-V Settings
  3. Browse to Enhanced Session Mode Policy
  4. Check Allow Enhanced Session Mode
