Windows SPICE Clients

Download Virt Viewer

Windows clients requires the virt-viewer tool to connect to their Virtual Machine.

Fix Windows registry

If virt-viewer won’t start automatically after when viewing the virtual machine, add this to the Registry, or download spice.reg. (Thanks to @gmiranda).

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\spice]
@="URL:spice"
"URL Protocol"=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\spice\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\Program Files\\VirtViewer v5.0-256\\bin\\remote-viewer.exe,1"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\spice\Extensions]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\spice\shell]
@="open"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\spice\shell\open]


[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\spice\shell\open\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\VirtViewer v5.0-256\\bin\\remote-viewer.exe\" \"%1\""
