VMRCPlus goes public – download now

Announced on Keith Combs‘ blog:

For those of you running Microsoft Virtual Server, we have a new treat in store for you.

Matthijs ten Seldam, a Principal Consultant in the Netherlands has developed a VM client display and management tool called VMRCPlus.  This tool will be available shortly on the Microsoft download center, TechNet online download centers, and in the companion disk of a new book written by Robert Larson & Janique Carbone.

As with most if not all of our resource kit type tools, there is no support for the tool.

However, here’s a list of the goodies in the tool in case you are brave enough:

  • Direct control of local or remote instances of the Virtual Server service. IIS and IE browser are no longer required!
  • Tabbed interface to quickly jump between Virtual Server hosts and guest VMRC sessions.
  • Reusable saved states: this feature allows users to preserve a particular saved state and return to that state at any time.
  • Multiple guest selection supported for startup/shutdown/save/display.
  • Browse button navigation for media, hard disk images, ISO images, .VMC files, etc.
  • Drag and Drop support for .VMC files, ISOs images, VHD and VFD files.
  • Resizable desktop support for guests running Virtual Machine Additions (maximize VMRC window supported).
  • Limited cut and paste of text from host to guest (only).
  • A built-in utility to take JPG screenshots of running guests. Useful when filing bugs.
  • Built-in error notification with Virtual Server eventlog viewer.
  • A Virtual Networks Manager and Virtual Disks Manager that cover all features.
  • Keyboard shortcuts (e.g. Ctrl-S to save state a guest).
  • Create multiple guests at once.
  • Create guest from parent (or multiple guests)!
  • Automatic reconnect to a designated Virtual Server host.
  • Toolbars in both Guest and Console Manager for quick access.
  • Unlimited number of guests.
  • Maximum of 32 Virtual Server hosts.
  • Sorting on columns of guests so you can sort based on status and multi-select.
  • Automatic detection of Virtual Machine Additions and notification.
  • Detection of Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1.
  • Download x86 version @ http://keithcombs.members.winisp.net/vmrcplus/VMRCplus-1.5.0-x86.zip

    Download x64 version @ http://keithcombs.members.winisp.net/vmrcplus/VMRCplus-1.5.0-x64.zip

    When the microsoft.com download center links go live, the links above will change.  Enjoy !!!
