Will it work with VIX 1.10?

I've been trying to get the sample running for about an hour now and no luck, I'm getting this error:

C:\Users\mfisch\Desktop\Test\RemoteInstall\bin>RemoteInstaller.exe /config:foo.config /outputDir:tests\testlogs /outputXml:testlog.xml

RemoteInstaller 1.2.8669.0: Product Test Driver

Disconnecting from 'localhost' (Workstation)ERROR: The work item caused an excpetion, see the inner exception for details


Based on poking around, this seems to be a VIX config issue.  I was using VIX 1.10, will it work with that?

I've triple checked my config file, especially the paths, and I'm pretty sure this should work.

Update, same issue with VIX 1.7.  Any ideas?

It's definitely a problem with VixCOM. Which version of VMWare Workstation do you have?

I just updated to 6.5.5.

I found other people saying this fixed it, although not in relation to RemoteInstall:

"it is just a little mistake in vixwrapper-config.txt.

the vix-1.10 has no section for workstation 7.0.1

just fill the lines below in the  vixwrapper-config.txt and all works fine"

UPDATE: I found vixwrapper-config.txt and saw that there was no entry for Workstation 6.5.5, I added the following lines:

ws       4  vmdb  6.5.5 Workstation-6.5.5

ws       4  vmdb  6.5.5 Workstation-6.5.0

ws       4  vmdb  6.5.5 Workstation-6.5.1

ws       4  vmdb  6.5.5 Workstation-6.5.2


And now it works.  The first line definitely did not fix it, so I just added all the rest and one of them did.
