Still struggling to get the ovs working on OVS windows 10.

Firstly I would like to ask the question, do I have to have hyper-v feature
enabled even if I am not gonna run virtual machine but use ovs only within
host machine.

After compilation and install that what I get:-

C:\Users\...> ovs-dpctl show
2018-11-11T21:56:32Z|00001|dpif_netlink|INFO|The kernel module does not
support meters.

the file specified.

for details.

I skipped the kernel module installation (run install uninstall.cmd) as I
thought it relates to target machine only.

I also have Hyper-V feature not installed on my machine.

Any help would be appreciated
