This is kind of ridiculous.
I spent all of 5 mins getting vSRX to run in Hyper-V (2012R2). It runs there just aren't any interfaces. I unfortunately couldn't devote anymore time to trying to hack it together.
There is obviously a demand for this and considering just about all of Juniper's competitors(PAN, Fortinet, Cisco, Checkpoint, etc.) offer virtual firewalls with support for all of the top hypervisors including Hyper-V and Xen it's hard to believe Juniper can't seem to figure it out.
With the push to the cloud(that's been going on for quite a while now) how does Juniper justify the fact that their vSRX does not run on the second largest cloud provider(Microsoft Azure) and is only recently supported in AWS?

This post was initially raised for vGW (Firefly Host) and as mentioned earlier, Hyper-V is unsupported and we do not have any plans to include it.
Also, the product is reaching EOL in couple of months (http://www.juniper.net/support/eol/vgw.html)
However, I see that your concern is for vSRX (not to be confused with vGW as they are different products). Juniper is having plans to include support for HyperV in future for vSRX but for now, even vSRX is not supported on HyperV.
I hope this answers your concerns.

As far as I know this is still on the Roadmap but not to be expected "soon" because of the lack of demand.
Every Customer I know runs vmware and Hyper-V is only used in Lab-Scenarios.

To my knowledge official Hyper-V support is rather close (1H 2017) - I will not comment on a specific release here but it's not far out in the future :-)
