comment Virtual Win 7 machine irreparable on reboot (with pending Windows updates)
Unfortunately, I did not have time to try these suggestions before the bounty expired, but I gave it to you anyway.

@nicolap8 Ah. No, I want a boootable, usable VM. If data access were the only issue, I'd just copy directly from the (running) VM.

@nicolap8 The whole point of the question is that the VM wrecks itself on boot.

@harrymc I have not, but I'd rather avoid that if possible, because quite a bit of the work I'm attempting to preserve by cloning the machine has been done since the problem started.

comment Vim: How to delete a vim buffer when you quit a file in vim
@Pencilcheck You couldn't think of a less confrontational way to phrase that? I any case, yes, :q (or :quit) will only close a single window at a time, but it's still the "quit" command and is in fact used to quit the editor.

comment Determine process name for VirtuaWin rule?
I'll accept your answer because it shows how to determine the process name as seen by VirtuaWin, even though the results are disappointing. Thanks for your help.

comment Determine process name for VirtuaWin rule?
...huh. The full path does not appear to work, either, and middle-clicking and selecting "Add Window Rule" shows that the process name for each window is the window name with the first character replaced with ? (so of course it differs from window to window). I suppose this must be due to some sort of futzing about with window properties in the application itself.

comment Can I use vim to open a huge file effectively?
Note that (1) there's a plugin (vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=1506) for turning on several of these options automatically when a large file is opened, and (2) even with this program, opening files that are more than a couple GB in size can still be problematic, so I recommend following the "Ctrl-C" tip here: stackoverflow.com/a/19795855/1858225

comment Close ALL Chrome processes to allow channel-switch
That's fortunate for you, I guess, but I've switched multiple times now and run into this problem each time. Are you sure you have the "Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed" setting turned on, and do you have many background apps? In any case, I know kill makes killing processes more convenient, but I still count that as a "manual" solution.
