Start VirtualBox from DOS

Recommended Posts

Hi, sorry but I cannot figure out a very simple thing.

I need to start...stop... Oracle VirtualBox from DOS.

I do not have problem to start DOS itself from AutoIT, but cannot figure out how to open DOS and exacute the following line/command:

"C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\VBoxManager.exe" startvm WindowsXP

Thanks.

Thanks,

Dim $command = " """ & "C:Program FilesOracleVirtualBoxVBoxManager.exe" & """ startvm WindowsXP"

_RunDos($command)

works fine, have some problems with """ counting, but finally it works.

Thanks again
