Windows 7: New VM Duplication tool (XP Mode and others)

New VM Duplication tool (XP Mode and others)

I've created a tool based on (most of) the instructions described here. Should hopefully make it easier for people to make copies of Window 7 VMs (XP Mode and others), without having to go through the detailed tutorials and manually edit a bunch of XML files. The tool is called XP-More, and is free, portable and open source. This is a first release, further improvements will be made soon. Feedback will be appreciated.

Interesting. Going to test, reporting back with my findings.

Version 1.0 of XP-More released now.

(I'm not going to publish every update here, of course - just thought it was worth mentioning because it's the first release, and works better than the beta version)

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there

Don't want to disparage your efforts but the SIMPLEST and EASIEST way to copy VM's is simply just to back up the directory -- as far as the HOST OS is concerned they are just "Bog standard" Data files".

For VBOX or VMWARE VM's just save the director/directories you saved your VM's in with your favourite software - Acronis etc or even WINDOWS EXPLORER itself.

I am currently playing around with 9 different VM's (not all at rhe same time) which exist in this directory (image shown).

I just run my backup against the Whole Directory --- this can be copied to other host machines etc -- Job simply done.
