Aside from the link that André posted, vmware-vdiskmanager.exe is also included in the VMware Virtual Disk Development Kit and although it is not an individual file as in the VMware KB, Repairing a virtual disk in Fusion 3.1 and Workstation 7.1, nonetheless I though it should be mentioned.
The Virtual Disk Development Kit (VDDK) is a collection of C libraries, code samples, utilities, and documentation to help you create and access VMware virtual disk storage. The kit includes sets of C function calls to manipulate virtual disk files, C++ code samples that you can build with either Visual Studio or the GNU C compiler, and documentation about VDDK and vSphere libraries.
Developers can get started on the F1 instance by creating an AWS account and downloading the AWS Hardware Development Kit (HDK). The HDK includes documentation on F1, internal FPGA interfaces, and compiler scripts for generating AFI. Developers can start writing their FPGA code to the documented interfaces included in the HDK to create their acceleration function. Developers can launch AWS instances with the FPGA Developer AMI. This AMI includes the development tools needed to compile and simulate the FPGA code. The Developer AMI is best run on the latest C5, M5, or R4 instances. Developers should have experience in the programming languages used for creating FPGA code (i.e. Verilog or VHDL) and an understanding of the operation they wish to accelerate.
T4g instances deliver up to 40% better price performance over T3 instances for a wide variety of burstable general purpose workloads such as micro-services, low-latency interactive applications, small and medium databases, virtual desktops, development environments, code repositories, and business-critical applications. Customers deploying applications built on open source software across the T instance family will find the T4g instances an appealing option to realize the best price performance within the instance family. Arm developers can also build their applications directly on native Arm hardware as opposed to cross-compilation or emulation.
VHD (Virtual Hard Disk) is a file format that specifies a virtual machine hard disk encapsulated within a single file. The VHD image format is used by virtualization platforms such as Microsoft Hyper-V and Citrix Xen.
The virtual machine must be in a stopped state before generating the VMDK or VHD image. The VM cannot be in a paused or suspended state. We suggest that you export the virtual machine with only the boot volume attached. You can import additional disks using the ImportVolume command and attach them to the virtual machine using AttachVolume. Additionally, encrypted disks (e.g. Bit Locker) and encrypted image files are not supported. You are also responsible for ensuring that you have all necessary rights and licenses to import into AWS and run any software included in your VM image.
You will be charged standard Amazon S3 storage fees for storing your exported VM image file. You will also be charged standard S3 data transfer charges when you download the exported VM file to your on-premise virtualization environment. Finally, you will be charged standard EBS charges for storing a temporary snapshot of your EC2 instance. To minimize storage charges, delete the VM image file in S3 after downloading it to your virtualization environment.
Code Composer Studio is an integrated development environment (IDE) for TI's microcontrollers and processors. It comprises a suite of tools used to develop and debug embedded applications. Code Composer Studio is available for download across Windows®, Linux® and macOS® desktops. It can also be used in the cloud by visiting
Code Composer Studio includes an optimizing C/C++ compiler, source code editor, project build environment, debugger, profiler and many other features. The intuitive IDE takes you through each step of the application development flow. Familiar tools and interfaces make getting started faster than ever before. The desktop version of Code Composer Studio combines the advantages of the Eclipse software framework with advanced capabilities from TI resulting in a compelling feature-rich environment. The cloud-based Code Composer Studio leverages the Theia application framework enabling development in the cloud without needing to download and install large amounts of software.
SCSI Controllers: HotAdd relies on the SCSI protocol. With VDDK 6.5 or later, VMware recommends the paravirtual SCSI (PVSCSI) controller. (For more information, see Virtual Disk Development Kit Release Notes.) For older VDDK versions, use the LSI SCSI controller. HotAdd does not support IDE disks.
Most of the time, you install the test operating in the virtual machine. But you can also download pre-built virtual machine images to save yourself some time. So, here are several websites from where you can download virtual disk images for VirtualBox.
A virtual disk image (VDI) is the image of a VirtualBox virtual hard disk. You can download a VDI, load it in VirtualBox (or another virtual machine tool), and load the pre-built operating system environment. For many users, it saves time to download and install an operating system in VirtualBox.
OS Boxes is a handy site listing nearly 60 different virtual disk images. The VDIs include the most popular Linux distros, and a few obscure ones, too. The VDIs on offer use relatively up-to-date versions of the Linux operating systems, one of OS Boxes' best features.
Virtual disk images do have some advantages over ISOs. You can download and install a range of operating systems very easily. It shouldn't take long to boot into the system once downloaded, and you can always switch it out for another VDI if the environment or experience is not what you want or need.
These VDI download sites offer the best selection of clean and completely free virtual disk images. We wouldn't advise you to stray too far from the beaten path, searching for alternative VDI download sites. The selection is minimal. In some cases, the lesser-known sites may host malware or even malicious VDIs. 2b1af7f3a8
