  • Hi,

     

    As I know, VMLite provides limited USB support, only USB storage device can be used as the shared folder from the VM. Other USB devices, such as Webcams, USB printers won't work inside the VM. For more information, please contact VMLite for support.

     

    Why not using Windows Virtual PC? Windows Virtual PC supports the USB detection. For more information, you can refer to the following article:

  • XP Mode or your own install of Windows XP?

    You can't legally run XP Mode on a Windows 7 Home Premium OS.

  • Unless Microsoft made some recent changes Virtual PC does not provide any USB support and XP Mode will not install on Home Premium.

    VMware Player is FREE, VMs can be created with the current version (ver. 3.1), and it supports USB.

    There is no such thing as XP Mode for Windows 7 Home Premium.  XP Mode is only for Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise.

    You can download the Virtula PC if you want, but there is no USB support in Virtula PC.

    If you want USB support, I suggest you go to www.vmware.com and download the VMware Player which is FREE.

  • Rick,

    Windows Virtual PC provides usb support for all guests for which integration components are available.  XP, Vista, Windows 7.  XP Mode is not needed for usb support.  Windows Virtual PC runs on all editions (except perhaps Starter) so if the OP has a usable copy of XP to install, usb support will not be a problem.

    Thank you, Colin.  I learned something new today.

    When did they add USB support to Virtual PC?

  • When Windows Virtual PC was released, which was at pretty much the
    same time as Windows 7.

  • Rick,

    Windows Virtual PC is not descended from Virtual PC 2007 so just calling it Virtual PC is a little confusing.
