[vbox-dev] VBoxVmService - running serviced VMs from a Windows NT Service

Hello everyone! 

Since I first encountered VirtualBox, I tried to figure out a way to make my
virtual machines start at boot-time *without* a user having to log on to the
host-system and - furthermore - to *safely* shut them down again, in the
event of a system-shutdown or a reboot. 

Browsing the official forums for quite a while, I found that many other
users were asking for a solution to do the exact same thing. 

So here it is now. It's still dirty. It's heavily patched. But it does the
trick! Very Happy


Introducing: VBoxVmService (currently hosted on sourceforge.net: HYPERLINK
ts/vboxvmservice )


Now here is my feature request:


It would be great to enable OSE’s SDL to run in a true headless mode (like
the closed source’s VRDP does).


Any ideas?


Cheers, matt
