Description

ATTENTION:
Since Sourceforge sometimes points users to an older release - our current stable version is "4.1 Ginger" --> https://sourceforge.net/projects/vboxvmservice/files/vboxvmservice/Versions%204.x/VBoxVmService-4.1-Ginger.exe/download

ABOUT THE PROJECT:
The open source virtualization software VirtualBox was lacking an option to run virtual machines as a Windows NT/XP/2003/W7/W8x service entity. VBoxVmService does the trick!

    Beautiful. Got 4.1-Genger working with VirtualBox-4.3.8! Now I can have my Linux VM auto-started again. Thanks!

    These guys do a great job with this. I've downloaded it a few times (as I need it) and it works great.

    This "just works" for me. I was very frustrated trying to get auto startup and shutdown to work "The Microsoft Way" via group policy...Then I found this and my problem was solved. Thanks! [Windows Server 2012]
