Hi All,
I installed the LATEST version of the Windows QEMU Guest Agent v1.171 and now the VM wont shutdown without a STOP

Has anyone had to deal with this and know of a solution or do you know how to un-install the
Windows QEMU Guest Agent on a windows 10 VM?

I know - should have done a snapshot :(


Did you enabled the GA in the options of the VM itself? Do stopped the VM completely and start it again after enable and install it?

It's not different to any other applications, so you find it under apps.
Hi Sb
I have disabled the QEMU agent in the options window and when I look to remove the app there is no agent listed


Is it called something else?
