.VMC - uses relative .VHD path first?

    If the relative path to the .VHD file exists in the .VMC file does VPC
    ignore the absolute path? That is, does is just use the absolute path as a
    fallback in case the .VHD file can't be located via the relative path?

  2. Yup.

    A bit of logic here:

    If [relative path is valid]
    {
    if [absolute path is valid]
    {
    Great - everything is fine!
    }
    else
    {
    Update absolute path to match relative path
    }
    }
    else
    {
    if [absolute path is valid]
    {
    Update relative path to match absolute path
    }
    else
    {
    Error - We can't find the disk!
    }
    }

    Thanks! That will simplify our deployment strategy. As long as the
    relative path is OK we don't need folks to update the VMC file using noted
    to fix the absolute location.

    Oops, that should be "using *notepad* to fix the absolute location."
