  • This is very nice but only works locally

    • I made a slight change to the VirtualHardDiskSettingData.cs file. The GetVirtualHardDiskSettingDataEmbeddedInstance function was modified to accept a ManagementScope scope object, and then down inside where we are using ManagementClass settingClass we just assign settingClass.Scope = scope; and now this *ought* to allow us to work with disks remotely.
      I've not tested this yet, but after looking at the wmiutilities functions, this seems to be the proper fix.

    • The sample provided work on Win 8/2012 but, how to do it on 2008 R2?
      CREATE_VIRTUAL_DISK_VERSION_2 is not available in 2008 R2, I tried using CREATE_VIRTUAL_DISK_VERSION_1 with params.Version1.ParentPath as a parent vhd for which i want a differencing vhd to be crated. I get a error code of 87 by CreateVirtualDisk which means incorrect parameters. 
      Any suggestions?
