> For your information. These are my first python or programming steps.

> Just checkout my scripts from svn:

> You will get there 4 files. 
> The problem is in file VNBox_VM.py in method removevm Line 258.
> To get the complete program running you need an xml file and an
> template operaring system. Both can be downloaded from

Sorry, I've set the wrong permission, so the files there where unable
to download. Problem is now solved, so anyone could try.

> To get into the problem just use:
> VNBox.py test_scenario.xml create (which will create the machines in
> VirtualBox)
> and
> VNBox.py test_scenario.cml remove (which will remove the scenario
> the failure would come up (only on Windows))
> There are other parameters available like start (starting the
> scenario), stop (try to shutdown the systems with ACPI) and kill
> (poweroff).
> There are many things to to, but for the moment I have a behavior
> the old VNUML:
