    Help: VHD mounting


    I installed VirtualBox 4.1 on my Windows 8 RP dev PC and uninstalled It. It removed the functionality to click and mount a VHD file. Any help?

    Thanks Friends!

    Hello Grant,

    It sounds like the default associations for your VHD files got messed up. Downloading and merging the .reg file for the listed .vhd option in the tutorial below should be able to fix this for you if this is the case. It will restore the default associations for .vhd files.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
