I looked a the post by admin on how to install vmlite and vbox with a bat file.
here is my take on it, I added a few lines and made a launcher
"
cd C:\Program Files\VMLite\VMLite Workstation

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

VMLite.exe
"
The first line changes to the vmlite program directory and the last line starts VMLite.
Save the file as a bat file in your documents folder. Right click on the bat file and send to desktop as a shortcut, this is the only way I could set the compatibility option to run as administrator. You have to run as administrator for the copy Drivers to work.
I can now double click on the shortcut and run VMlite, I created another bat file for VirtualBox.
"
cd C:\Program Files\Sun\VirtualBox

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

VirtualBox.exe

A plugin is under development that will allow you to access VMLite XP Mode features right from Sun's VirtualBox binaries, so you can have USB access and other Sun's features.

This may take 2 weeks from now

Er.. I don't know why it don't work for you buys but...

I already had Virtual Box installed when I got and installed VMLight. On a whim, I opened up virtual box to see if it would run the XP Mode VHD, and to my surprise, I saw the XP Mode VM there already. I started it up and it works exactly like running it from VMLight.. most of the the integration is still there. There seemed to be no or little difference.

Some of the host side integrated stuff is not there like running apps from the XP Mode through the host, but I can surf the net, and transfer things to and from the host and this XP Mode running in Virtual Box, with no problem.

It makes me ask the question.. if you already have VMLite running in XP mode.. what would the advantages be to have Virtual Box run XP Mode with full integration also?

Unless you just want more than one XP Mode running at a time.. but you can already do that with VMLite by itself can't you?
