Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1 not installing on Vista Ultimate x64 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to install VS 2005 R2 Sp1 on my Vista Ultimate x64 machine. I start the installation and when it is nearly finished, Windows Installer pops up an error. After closing the error message, Virtual Server says it installed succussfully. However, when starting the Web Admin site I get a File Type not know dialogue box.

    I have tried both downloads from Microsoft, the original and the supposed fix for Vista x64. Both do this. I am really wanting to run Virtual Server on this machine. Virtual PC will not allow 64 bit OS.
