vdk-gui - a virtual disk mount utility

The vdk-gui is a utility to mount vmdk/dsk files, virtual disk files, used in VMWare and VirtualBox.
It is a graphical interface for Ken Kato´s vdk.exe (GNU License).
The GUI has commandline option, SendTo -> vdk-gui.exe.

For x86 Systems there is a vdk.exe v.3.2 that "ignores bad entry point", which makes the tool much more comfortable.
Maybe someone in the community can patch v.3.3 so it also "ignores bad entry point" - (according to the GNU License).

Tested and running with vdk.exe v.3.2 on Windows_XP 32bit and Windows_7 32bit.
Tested and running with vdk.exe v.3.3 on Windows_XP 32bit and Windows_7 64bit.
Better run with Admin rights!

Unsolved issue:
In Win_7 x64 an image gets mounted to a drive, although vdk.exe doesn´t confirm that.
If You want to unmount it, You have to LINK/assign a letter to it.

There is a contradiction to the offical statement in the "readme.txt":
"You cannot assign more than one drive letters to one partition."

Hope this a usefull tool.
