    Hi!
    have anyone a idea how i can save the files "...vhd" and "...vms"?

    I build a start scriprt via the command line:

    "Virtual PC.exe" -pc "MyComputer" -launch -singlepc

    that will work fine...

    Now the saving method:


    "Virtual PC.exe" -pc "SUSE10 Mode" -pause -singlepc

    copy "MyComputer*.*" "C:\SAVE"

    "Virtual PC.exe" -pc "SUSE10 Mode" -resume -singlepc

    The problem is that the vhd file is in use...
    Now i need an idea how i can save the file with any parameter...

    best regards

    The VM actually needs to be hibernated or shut down to free up the VHD, and
    I don't think there is a command line switch to do that.

    If you have any backup software that can use a VSS writer, I think you could
    back it up that way, otherwise you're going to have to hibernate the VM,
    probably by sending a command into the VM that will hibernate the OS.
