Excellent, if you ever get bored maybe a wrapper library for VirtualBox? Thanks again for the great tool

Fantastic library - brilliant progressions since v1.1 from the early CodeProject days! I'll reply to the thread in two weeks to tell you what we're doing with it ;-)

As an inexperienced developper I was very happy with the ease of use of this code! It handles al the VM complexitity for me and google was enough support to tackle my problems when getting started.

Previous reviewer should get help in Discussions, this is a problem easy to fix.
