Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

VMGuide is a handy utility to manage your virtual machines, provides an easy access to hardware configuration and BIOS settings that are commonly hidden in the UI.
Useful when installing pre-release or vintage software.

This is an upgrade to the VMGuide/VMHelper 1.x released here years ago.

Completely rewritten in C#/WPF with a Modern GUI.
Search all your VMs automatically, so you don't have to dig through your hard drive for your configuration file.
Command line CUI with scripting support. (uses a syntax similar to Diskpart)
VMGuide.Core.dll common library and "vm-settings://" URL protocol for integrating VMGuide to your project.

Supported Virtualizer
  • VMware Workstation/Player
  • Microsoft Virtual PC 2004/2007
  • Windows Virtual PC (for Windows 7)
  • Virtualbox

Features
  • Adjust the BIOS date of your virtual machine and disable time sync.
  • Turn off ACPI support, handy when installing OSes that have issuses with ACPI.
  • Specify the hardware your VM virtualizes, like Sound Card and Network Adapter (VMware only)

Runs on .Net Framework 4.0.

Open-source in GitHub, currently in beta.
Download: https://github.com/driver1998/VMGuide/releases

run Register.bat to register this protocol to your user (just open it with notepad if you care about what it actually does),
then you can do something like this:

Windows Longhorn Build 4074
KEY: TCP8W-T8PQJ-WWRRH-QH76C-99FBW
BIOSDate: 4/26/2004 vm-settings://biosdate/20040426

Windows 2000 Build 1946
BIOSDate: 12/14/1998 vm-settings://biosdate/19981214
ACPI is required to be off. vm-settings://acpi/false

I've integrate this into my own version of Windows Beta Information Library (currently for my personal use only).

When you click that link, VMGuide will show up and be ready to import that setting.
And just select the VM you want to apply that setting, VMGuide will do the rest for you.
