Error adding a RemoteFX video adapter to a VM running Windows Server 2012 R2

When I was trying to add a remotefx video adapter to a VM running on Windows Server 2012 R2 I got an error message 
Error applying RemoteFX 3D Video Adapter Changes.


And what is that? Well clearly its a GUI bug as I see several other have the same issues as well.The solution was to run this command from PowerShell

Import-Module RemoteDesktopServices

Add-VMRemoteFx3dVideoAdapter -VMName nameofcomputer

SET-VMRemoteFx3dVideoAdapter –VMName nameofcomputer

After that the adapter worked as it should Smilefjes
