This time, as the VDI image format is quite simple, I made my own proxy for VDI images.
Imdisk + Discutils could achieve the same except that discutils requires .Net 4.0 which is not always available.
As always the command line :
« server » -> devio –dll=proxy.dll;dllopen shm:test_proxy c:\temp\freedos.vdi
« client » -> imdisk -a -t proxy -o shm -o ro -f test_proxy -m x:
Use the start command in front of devio if you want to stuff it all in one batch.
