    Windows 2007 VMs in Windows 7

    I have an old VM I created in Virtual PC 2007 and want to get it running under Windows 7 Virtual PC. The only problem is when you click on the Microsoft Virtual PC link you get an explorer box and when you place teh old VM in there it just does nothing once you've selected it. Pah! I have a few docs I need to get off it, and it's a bit frustrating!

    I you only want to get some docs off it, you can mount the VHD file natively in Windows 7 disk management. Open up disk management and go Action > Attach VHD, and then browse to the VHD file from your old VM and hit Ok. Your VHD should show up as another disk, and you can work with it the same as a physical one.

    Hope this helps.
