Please note it works like this on all server versions of Windows 
(w2k3/w2k8/w2k12/w2k16).
Also the guest tools installer doesn’t install the QEMU service, so it’s 
necessary to run
C:\Program Files (x86)\oVirt Guest Tools\drivers\guest-agent\qemu-ga-x86.exe
manually.

Hello team,
FYI standard installation of Guest tool on Windows server O.S. is somehow 
flawed.
It setups a windows service named “BalloonService” with path
C:\Program Files (x86)\oVirt Guest Tools\drivers\Balloon\w2k8R2\amd64\blnsvr.exe

Unfortunately, the real path created on filesystem is
C:\Program Files (x86)\oVirt Guest Tools\drivers\Balloon\2k8R2\amd64\blnsvr.exe
(please note the missing “w” after \Baloon\ )

Thanks for the report Andrea, checking...


The easy workaround is to run this command on a “run as admin” cmd shell:
sc config BalloonService binpath= "C:\Program Files (x86)\oVirt Guest 
Tools\drivers\Balloon\2k8R2\amd64\blnsvr.exe" DisplayName= "Baloon Service 
Ovirt 4" start= auto

I suggest to fix either the command that create path during installation or the 
one which setup the service

cheers
