install vmlite side by side with virtualbox 8 Years, 1 Month ago Karma: 0
hi is it possible to rename vmlite files andservices so that we will be able to install it and run it even tho virtualbox is installed on our system? if so it would be very much appreciated, because there are those of us who already have a virtualbox setup and would like to keep it but would still like to use vmlite for the features it provide. thanks.

and a feature i'd like to see in vmlite is drag and drop. so that i can drag files from the host pc to the guest pc.

Yes, it's possible. The first step might be to run VirtualBox or VMLite one at a time. Running both of them at the same time is tricky. Would running one of them at a time good enough?

We could provide a switcher gui for you to switch between them.

yes running one at a time is no problem for me. i just don't to have to uninstall one to install the other. i want to be able to have both installed on the system at the same time. and can the folder mapping be a lil easier plz. i want to be able to map any folder i want once it is shared and also to open any of my shared folders without having to map them first. thanks for the reply.

You can do following to install vmlite and VirtualBox together.

(1) Install VMLite first

(2) Install VirtualBox

(3) If you want to use VMLite, go to c:\program files\VMLite\VMLite Workstation, then run the following in cmd window. You can put them into a .bat file:

VBoxSVC.exe /ReregServer
regsvr32 /s /u VBoxC.dll
regsvr32 /s VBoxC.dll
copy Drivers\VBoxDrv\VBoxDrv.sys c:\windows\system32\drivers

(4) if you want to run VirtualBox, go to VirtualBox install folder, usually, c:\program files\Sun\VirtualBox

then run the same command as in (3)

You may need to reboot the host if not working,

Make sure all VMLite.exe, VBoxSvc.exe and VirtualBox.exe processes are killed before switching.

From technical point of view, we could provide a plugin to current VirtualBox users to have VMLite features. Namely, you can still use your VirtualBox software, with all additional VMLite features. If you like this idea, pls post here.

But I am not sure this would violate VirtualBox EULA.
