VMWare and VmCom

Looks as though the COM scripting interface (VmCom) is being deprecated in favor of an SDK by VMWare. The actions you have in VBP 6.x assume that VmCom is installed locally on the workstation.

Will you continue to support the VMWare actions? Are there plans to change from the VmCom?

Thanks....

Nice. The new C API is DLL-based rather than COM-based, which will add an end-user requirement that those DLLs be in a path in the PATH environment variable.

BTW, it does appear that VmCom is still supported (just not being updated). And VmCom works w/ Server, GSX, and ESX, while the new API is Server-only.
