Virtual Server service

Virtual Server service

The Virtual Server service (Vssrvc.exe) creates virtual machines and provides all virtual machine functionality. It projects the emulated hardware into the virtual machine environment. It provides each virtual machine with its own 32-bit address space.

The Virtual Server service also includes the VMRC server, which uses the Virtual Machine Remote Control (VMRC) protocol to provide a mechanism by which remote VMRC clients can interact with virtual machines. With appropriate permissions, you can manage the virtual machine and interact with the guest operating system from a remote computer by using the keyboard and mouse. For background information about the VMRC client, see Virtual Machine Remote Control client.
