  • We entered a comma into to the VHD filesize. It doesn't like commas.

  • Without the comma, the new machine wizard is happier. No, we didn't establish a 130GB virtual hard drive. Although we could have, if we wanted to.

  • Ahh, so this is the equivalent of

    running Classic (OS9) applications in OSX. And it's free but not a default installation
    with Vista?

    In Mac, once you clicked on an OS 9 application, Classic started immediately. This
    looks a little complicated, naming a 'machine' and stuff like that.

    Well, have fun Vista folks. At least you can still run your programmes that aren't
    Vista-ble yet which is a good thing.

  • RE: Picking the OS (Virtual PC 2007 Installation Sequence)

    Hello
    Everything went nice. But one problem.
    The mouse tracking does not work well.
    If you click inside the virtual PC window, the mouse remains there. No way to get it out from the window. Microsoft had some instructions on installing some software but it never worked. Any idea ?
