Over the weekend, I tested pyvix with VMware Workstation 6.0.0 build
45731 and vix 1.1 build 45731
After a few changes for Workstation compatibility, the entire test
suite passes, except for two cases.
One is expected to fail, since it registers and unregisters VMs,
operations that Workstation does not support.
The other is due to a multithreading bug in VMware's code, which
causes Host.findRunningVMPaths() to return incorrect results and
perform invalid memory access. Just like all of the bugs that caused
the test suite to crash like crazy with Server 1.0.0, this one is a
VMware bug, not a pyvix bug.
Although this remaining bug is irritating, overall Vix reliability has
improved hugely since Server 1.0.0, when it was close to useless. I'm
very busy right now, but within a few weeks, I'll test the vix-45731
build with Server 1.0.3, and post new pyvix binaries that should be
compatible with both Server 1.0.x and Workstation 6.0.x.
