Hyper-V Program Manager
Along with the recent release of Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1 - we now have access to the final version of VHDMount to play with. With those of you who are unfamiliar with this tool - it allows you to mount a virtual hard disk on a physical computer just like it were a separate physical tool.
The final version of VHDMount brings two notable changes from the beta 2 version:
VHDMount is a command line tool that takes a number of parameters:
This is a very useful little tool - and I am going to be doing a number of posts on it in the coming days - so I hope you all have a chance to check it out.
The signed drivers will be useful.
This looks like a handy applet, it would be useful to have seperately without having to install virtual server 2005 for those of us who already use Virtual PC instead.

I installed Virtual Server on the same physical host along with Virtual PC. I only really use Virtual PC but it benefited from the fixes that come with Virtual Server. I agree that it would be useful to not have to do this hack, but it's not worth complaining about. This hack is really very trivial to do.

Thanks Ben, I was unaware that virutal server could co-exist with virtual PC now ( I seem to recall that it could not in past, or is that a strange delusion ?)
The ability to install a subpiece without having to install core functionality - awesome. Everything I've seen in past always insisted on the core component being installed, so this is great.
