Displaying VMWare Server status on the desktop

2 May 2006 21:55 — VMWare,Windows

In another post, I provided a VB script that outputs the status of the guests running on a VMWare Server. With a tiny modification that script can be used within Sysinternals' BGInfo, to display this information on the host's desktop:

In order to do this, change the line "WScript.Echo s" to "Echo s". In BGInfo, create a VBScript Custom field, by clicking "Custom...", "New...", selecting "VB Script file" and entering a field name and the path to your script.
