    VPC 2007 on Windows 7

    Hi,

    Is it possible to install Virtual PC 2007 on Windows 7?

    The reason i ask is because i want to run a few virtual machines, looks like you cant do that in Windows XP Mode.

    Thanks

    I don't think that you can do that but if you have virtualisation support in the CPU you can use Virtual PC for Windows 7

    edit: Sorry bit confused now, if you install Windows XP mode and Virtual PC from link above you certainly can run VMs.

    Hmm I have an entry in the start menu for VirtualPC that has a subitem for managing VMs.
    Try looking for a %systemdrive%\users\<username>\Virtual Machines folder (the menu item is just a link to this folder as VMs are managed from that folder).

    Hang on you are sure you installed XP mode and then Virtual PC, they are two separate downloads?
