Setting a bundle requirement for Windows bundles for virtual machines

Using this vbscript in one of the ENGL phase process 0,1 or 2, you can set a System Variable which reflects where you're working in a Virtual Machine:

IsVirtualMachine = Utils.IsVirtualMachine()

If IsVirtualMachine <> 0 Then
status = Utils.SetSystemEnvironmentVariable("VIRTUALMACHINE", "true")
status = Utils.SetSystemEnvironmentVariable("VIRTUALMACHINE", "false")
End If

Then if you want to install e.g. VMware Tools in phase 3, only on Virtual Machines, you can add this requirement to the Windows bundle:

Environment Variable Value 'VIRTUALMACHINE' Equal to: true

Doing so, this Windows bundle will only be installed on virtual machines and will be skipped on physical machines.
