Virtual Server: Cant Add a VM in Virtual Server

If you've moved or removed a VM around you'll eventually run into this issue.  When you try to re-add a VM with the same name as the one that was removed, you get the message "The virtual machine could not be added. The virtual machine configuration could not be added. A configuration with this name already exists."

The solution to this problem is pretty simple, but it's definitely not obvious.  You simply need to delete the shortcut with the same name that’s located here:

%allusersprofile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Virtual Server\Virtual Machines

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Virtual Server\Virtual Machines

 Under Windows Vista it's located here:

%allusersprofile%\Microsoft\Virtual Server\Virtual Machines
