TOPIC: Can't shut down VM

Can't shut down VM 6 Years, 9 Months ago Karma: 0
I am having trouble shutting down my VM XP Mode. On choosing 'Start' then 'Shutdown'. Instead of stopping, it re-starts into the dos mode (like with an improper shutdown in P) where I can select Safe Mode etc. Trying everything except safe mode will cause it to repeat crash and then re-start. Same for Safe Mode but it also allows me to just close the VM session to Saved state.
Choosing Discard in the Workstation also does not work and just returns to DOS started screen too.

Can you help me shut down this machine to the 'Powered Off' state.

Second option is that, luckly, I do have a full hard drive backup of my main machine of an instance of VM in a stable state and a full restore to that instance of Virtual Machine would be acceptable, but I don't know which files I must restore in order to avoid the above looping to DOS screen. I tried this but it was unsuccessful and the same problem still existed.

At installation, I choose the default setting so if I have a 'VMLite XP mode 3', say in folder 'C:\Users\jack\VMLites' which file do I need to restore.

I would be grateful for any help, thanks.

you can change the Close option from VMLite Workstation, click Close node on the right, and change to Prompt or Power off.

Most likely, your vhd disk has been corrupt. You can simply copy back your backup of the .vhd file to c:\users\%loginid%\vmlites\VMLite XP Mode
