Windows Nano server 2016 & Linksys WRT350N v2

Im trying to use virtualhere USB servers for use of USB devices in Hyper-V

1. Nano Server
Im running Hyper-V on a Windows Nano Server.
And that wont let me run the virtualhere windows usb server.
Probably because Nano Server doesnt allow you to run EXE files that uses graphical compunents, since nano server is whout a graphical interface.
when running the exe in a remote powershell session the exe just exits again(maybe never starts).
I have tried running "vhusbdwin64.exe -b" but no difference. No output in the console either.

2.Linksys WRT350N
My other option was to run the USB server on a Linksys WRT350n v2(Running OpenWRT).
That worked fine for a couple of months, but yesterday i needed to restart the linksys. And now i cant get it to work again.

Before i downloaded the generic ARM binary (i think) to /tmp (no space in local storage) and that worked great.
Besides that the binary dissapears on reboot for explainable reasons.

Now when downloading the current version of vhusbdarm it wont start.
Im getting this error in the SSH console:
VirtualHere 3.4.6 caught signal 4 (Illegal instruction) and must exit. Sorry for the inconvenience, please contact mail@virtualhere for help
Illegal instruction

maybe im running the wrong binary
output of "uname -m" is: armv5tel

I think i vas running version 3.3.6 when it was working, does anyone have that version for this architecture?


1. Nano server is not supported, its not really a relevant build of windows because its only for containers in the cloud and by definition they dont have access to real hardware that the virtualhere server needs

2. Can you post the output of

cat /proc/cpuinfo

Suspected that Nanoserver is

Suspected that Nanoserver is not supported, Just hoping it could be solved anyway :)

Output of /proc/cpuinfo is:
Processor : Feroceon rev 0 (v5l)
BogoMIPS : 331.77
Features : swp half fastmult edsp
CPU implementer : 0x41
CPU architecture: 5TEJ
CPU variant : 0x0
CPU part : 0x926
CPU revision : 0

Hardware : Linksys WRT350N v2

That build seems to work great, thanks.
