DiskImageBuilder.GetBuilder doesnt seem to work for XVA

Oct 21, 2010 at 10:52 PM


I tried to build a DiskImageBuilder for an xva file with the specified disk type and variant and it wouldnt work.

For Type "XVA" the specified variant is "dynamic"
DiskImageBuilder builder = DiskImageBuilder.GetBuilder("XVA",  "dynamic");

since this didnt work, for kicks, i tried "fixed" as well (which is not a specified variant for "XVA")

DiskImageBuilder builder = DiskImageBuilder.GetBuilder("XVA",  "fixed");

Both calls give the same result which is an exception:

An unhandled exception of type 'System.NotSupportedException' occurred in DiscUtils.dll
Additional information: Specified method is not supported.

Any help on the topic would be much appreciated.

I realized DiskImageBuilder is not used for XVA format. My apologizes.
