[Xen-users] Release 0.9.5 of GPL PV Drivers for Windows

I've just made my first ever attempt at an Nullsoft installer, so if you
want to try it download "Xen PV Drivers 0.9.5.exe" from

The installer should detect the version of windows you are running and
install the drivers. At the moment you'll need to install the shutdown
monitor service manually, but you can do that from the start menu.

I haven't figured out a way to update the boot.ini (and the vista
equivalent) yet, and I'm a bit reluctant to try it as there is plenty of
potential to break things. I have added some documentation on the use of
bcdedit to the wiki though (you can get to the wiki page from the start
menu, or http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/XenWindowsGplPv), so if
someone can have a look and let me know if there's a better way I'd be
very grateful.

Other than that, I fixed a bug which was stopping the drivers working
for me under windows 2008, so if 2008 or Vista wasn't working previously
you might like to try this version.

I'd still like to hear from anyone who's run disk performance testing
recently... 0.9.3+ might perform a little better...
