  • This forum is for Windows 7 Virtual PC. Virtual PC 2007 questions should be posted to http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/en-us/default.aspx?dg=microsoft.public.virtualpc

    Exactly what is your problem? Does it not install? Did it stop working? Are you worried about your configuration being unsupported? Virtual PC 2007 SP1 work on platforms where it isn't officially supported. It also runs operating systems that are not offically supported. Unsupported means Microsoft won't provide help if you have a problem. People are using unsupported configurations every day without any problems.

    Don't forget the patch to VPC 2007 SP1: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/958162

  • Looks like, if you want a more useful answer, the next thing you need to do is give more details of just what the problem is.  For example, just what error messages do you get if you try to run it under Vista Home Premium SP2?
