|Display name:||Virtual Disk|
Virtual Disk logs on as LocalSystem and runs in its own process of vds.exe. It does not share its process with other services. If Virtual Disk fails to start, the error is recorded into the Event Log. Windows Vista startup proceeds, but a message box is displayed informing you that the vds service has failed to start.
Virtual Disk won't start, if the following system components are stopped or disabled:
1. Select your Windows Vista edition and Service Pack, and then click on the Download button below.
2. Save the RestoreVirtualDiskWindowsVista.bat file to any folder on your hard drive.
3. Right-click the downloaded batch file and select Run as administrator.
4. Restart the computer to save changes.
Note. Make sure that the
vds.exe file exists in the
%WinDir%\System32 folder. If this file is missing you can try to restore it from your Windows Vista installation media.
