Microsoft Specific

Starts execution of the virtual machine guest code that corresponds to the specified virtual machine control block (VMCB).

void __svm_vmrun(
   size_t VmcbPhysicalAddress



[in] VmcbPhysicalAddress

The physical address of the VMCB.

The __svm_vmrun function uses a minimal amount of information in the VMCB to begin executing the virtual machine guest code. Use the __svm_vmsave or __svm_vmload function if you require more information to handle a complex interrupt or to switch to another guest.

The __svm_vmrun function is equivalent to the VMRUN machine instruction. This function supports the interaction of a host's virtual machine monitor with a guest operating system and its applications.
