RE: [Xen-users] Why is XenCenter telling me to register my XCP box?

I actually resolved the Win32gui issue (it was related to another library 
required for python-Win32gui).  Once I resolved that, openxenmanager works (for 
a few minutes).  It seems to hang once a VNC session has been opened (sometimes 
before).  I noticed that the openxenmanager distro includes a windows VNC exe 

The thing I really need something for, rather than being able to open a remote 
terminal session into my VM's, is managing the VM's themselves on DOM0 (which 
is, unfortunately, absent from xenmanager xva).

Xenwebmanager xva is a cool idea, though.  What would be really, really cool is 
if it was #1) self-contained in DOM0 and #2) available as a setup option on XCP 
and #3) the VM management tools from openxenmanager were added to it.  My world 
would be perfect in that case :D

The windows port is still in progress as I understand. Adding the
