Start/stop/reboot virtual machine?

I'm surprised this wasn't requested yet. Those features are also part of the WMI provider.

I built what I needed at the time plus what I wanted to learn more about. The day job tends to get in the way...

Yea, I understand. Funny I needed the other functions of VM management.

Let me know which ones (I may be able to fit them in during a commute) or if you've already built them as additions to this cod ebase, add them here.

Start, stop, and hard reset a VM as mentioned in thread title.

I've built my own library using the MS WMI examples, so it uses their model of job handling though rather than what you did, and not sure if I can/should release my code publicly at this time. Though it's just a mod on the WMI examples.

I just looked at the docs for Msvm_ComputerSystem and remembered another reason why that isn't implemented yet: only after I implemented the types in the Model folder did I discover this: Management Strongly Typed Class Generator. I want to give that a try - this is as good an opportunity as any :)
