  • Hi,

    Please install XP Mode first, then install Windows Virtual PC and reboot. 

    Download them at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx 

    If after performing the two installation, you still cannot find the shortcuts under Windows Virtual PC. You may manually create a shortcut, and the target points to "%SystemRoot%\system32\rundll32.exe %SystemRoot%\system32\VMCPropertyHandler.dll,LaunchDefaultVM".

  • Hi all I Have the same problem installing xp mode in win 7 pro sp1 64 bit.

    I installed everything in the correct order as per microsoft's instructions in 2 ways on a clean install of windows and an up to date install. I have tried everythng i know. It has me frustrated as this is the reason i bought por.

    My sytem is a custom build AMD FX 8150 

    8 Gig Ram 1 terribyte HDD 1 Gig vidoe card

    The system is all new and windows is genuine.

    I have researched the web and tried many things with no luck.

    The setup just does not finish.

    Any help would be much appreciated as i have a new system that is useless if this don't work.

    Did you also read that this hotfix is only applicable to AMD Bulldozer CPUs?

    "This issue occurs because of a compatibility issue between Windows XP Mode and AMD Bulldozer-based multicore processors."
