    Thanks for the update note. Btw is there anyway to create a desktop shortcut directly to the VM on the free version or is that just avaliable on the paid version?

    @JPond

    Should have created one when it installed, if you checked that option (can't remember if there is an option).. but if not:

    Navigate to the .exe in Program Files (x86), right click, send to, Desktop (create shortcut)...

    @f14tomcat That creates a shortcut to the Player which then loads up and I have to select the VM. It doesnt launch the VM directly on a shortcut.

    Oops! Sorry, misunderstood.

    I just did the same thing with the configuration file of the VM I wanted. And the Desktop shortcut opened it up and ran.

    Why not create a new news item. This reply will get lost here?
