    The error it returns is a bit cryptic, but it makes sense from the perspective of the installer, running  inside the virtual machine.
    Virtual PC will not enable you to run 64bit virtual machines. Therefor the installer will return the error above.

    If your goal is to virtualize 64bit virtual machines, take a look at Hyper-V or other hypervisors, that offer the ability to run 64bit virtual machines.

  • You can run 64bit, but you have to select that in your configuration when setting up a new virtual machine, there select "Vista x64" and it should be working.

    I suppose you work with VirtualPC?

    You can also try out VirtualBox or VMware ;)

  • Please read this link http://download.microsoft.com/download/4/4/c/44ccd131-67fb-4224-a96e-193be1765b43/relnotes.htm it says virtual PC 2007 has NO support for x64. If indeed you want to load windows 7, then I suggest you get yourself a copy windows 7 but a 32bit version....
