Windows 7

Will VMWARE run WVPC VMs? Or will i have to go through the entire install and configuration process for a new VM.. cause that would be a deal breaker for me now.

Here's where I'm at. I have a Windows Service set to start automatic delayed that now runs my VM if I kick it off the service or I happen to be on when the Service is run (playing with delays etc.)

But If I reboot the desktop and don't log on, the service and vbscript never get passed the Startup step. No event log errors (service reports it started), just never completes the script. Where might I find any logs on WVPC. Looking into error handling/reporting in VBS now. Suspect the Script just hangs trying to find the VM.

Does this make any sense?

On my Vista Machine and the prior release of MS Virtual PC I had a web service starting the VM from a command line script that never gave me problems. BTW, in that environment the VM would load in the background (headless) and I would only access it with RDP, from the host box or external client.

I've now pumped about 6 hours into this interesting change of events.

I'm running Windows 7 x64 pro.

Thank you.
