Tried several reboots, and keep getting this error message when trying open Reflect:

viBoot could not detect a running instance of the Virtual Machine Management Services. Macrium viBoot requires Hyper-V version 6.03 or later.

I've been accessing Macrium fine just yesterday and for months. Windows 10 Home.

Embarrassing. I had two icons on my desktop from the installation. One for "Macrium Reflect", one for "Macrium viBoot" which I never really intended to use.  My Reflict icon got moved somehow, and I was trying to open it by clicking on the viBoot one.

I know, really stupid!  

If I ever attempt to actually use viBoot in the future, I will revisit any issues at that time.

As you realise, viboot needs Hyper-V on your computer. Hyper-V is part of your operating system. In Windows 10 you do not get it with the Home edition, you need Windows 10 Enterprise, Professional, or Education See also Microsoft web page: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/virtualization/hyper-v-on-windows/quick-start/enable-hyper-v
Hope this clarifies,
