Thanks, this was useful information for me as it wasn't clear that only the 2014 components were going to be removed.

comment How to interpret values of Perfmon counter Hyper-V Hypervisor Virtual processor\CPU Wait time per dispatch
Thanks David. I was thinking I could do something like this but got thrown off by the 'per dispatch' part. Does this imply I need to know how many dispatches there are before I can convert this to a percentage of time?

comment How can I verify whether a Windows cluster has previously been successfully validated?
OK, fair point that mentioning the directory where the reports exist could be useful information. That said, the question is clearly about programmatic checking and the content you pasted from Technet is obviously about clicking in the GUI. We'll probably end up parsing the report for keywords like 'failure', since there doesn't seem to be another option. When I looked into this several years ago, the SQL installer appeared to function the same way, checking the directory for the existence of a report and (apparently) failing if no such report existed.

The question is about programmatically checking, although parsing the report is one option. Unfortunately this answer only provides information anyone who knew enough to ask the question would already know.
