Announcing Xen userland for Windows PV drivers

From Chris Smowton on xen-devel…

About 4-5 months ago, I wrote some userland libraries to go against James Harper’s PV drivers for Windows Xen guests ( These provide a Xenstore, event channel and userland page granting interface very similar to those provided to Linux apps. I sent patches to James some months ago, but hearing no feedback for some time I’ve pushed my patches to a Github repo.

If anyone’s interested in the code, it can be found at
