  • 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.

  • Virtual PC 2007 virtual machines are file based and the file extension is "VMC." VPC '07 virtual machines do not include storage. The VMC file basically sets the parameters that virtualize a diskless motherboard. Then, you point the VMC file at another file...the one that represents the storage. Here, in this second screen of the new virtual machine wizard, the user is given the choice of building a newly configured VM from scratch (with custom settings), quickly creating a virtual machine with Virtual PC's user configurable defaults, or registering an existing VMC file with the console; one that the console isn't already aware of.

  • The first step in setting up a new virtual machine in Virtual PC 2007 is to give it a name.

  • 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 ?
