Dim connectParams As New VixDiskLibConnectParams

Try
     vixError = VixDiskLib_Init(1, 0, Nothing, Nothing, Nothing, Nothing)

     ' DEBUG:
     MsgBox("VixDiskLib_Init: " & vixError)

     connectParams.serverName = ""
     connectParams.creds.uid.userName = ""
     connectParams.creds.uid.password = ""

     diskPath = "E:\vlab3vm05.vmdk"
