  • We took the default installation options for Virtual PC 2007 (in other words, we didn't select any "features").

    For David Berlind's write-up on The Virtual PC 2007 Installation Sequence, see his post in ZDNet's TestBed blog.
  • Installation time went relatively quickly and was pain free when we installed Virtual PC 2007 on a Lenovo X60 Tablet running Microsoft's Windows Vista Business operating system.

    For David Berlind's write-up on The Virtual PC 2007 Installation Sequence, see his post in ZDNet's TestBed blog.
  • Microsoft's Virtual PC 2007 includes a wizard for creating new virtual machines. In the foreground, Virtual PC's console (where existing VM's are listed, created, removed, or reconfigured) and int eh background is the first screen of the new virtual machine wizard.

  • 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 ?
