With VMware Workstation, I do something similar by launching the VM but ignoring the console of it.  Use PuTTY to connect to the virtual machine via its IP address.  From PuTTY, anything on screen is trivially copied to the host's windows clipboard by selecting it with your mouse.

How may that work for you?
