Installing Windows Embedded POSReady in Virtual PC 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Need some help from the experts here. I am wondering if it is possible to install Windows Embedded POSReady in Virtual PC 2007 and what prerequisites would be required. From looking online I have seen it done with XPe and Embedded Standard but there's not much information about doing this with Embedded POSReady 2009. Basically once the OS is installed, I keep encountering the 0x07B stop error. I have searched online but could not arrive at a conclusive reason why the installation would be failing (is it a driver or hard disk error). Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

  • Noah,

    Is your question regarding POSReady 2009 or POSReady 7?  It is unclear from your original message since you are mentioning both.  While Virtual PC is a great testing environment and we use it internally quite a bit, this is not a supported scenario for either version of POSReady.

    Again, regarding POSReady 7, please report your feedback through the Connect forum rather than the public forum which is for currently released products.

  • It should just install. What settings do you have for the hard drive?

    There is also the free Virtualbox that works better than Virtual PC.

  • Just in case, make sure you pickup the 32 bit dvd and not the 64 bit one. I just installed POSReady 7 in Virtual PC and it works fine.

  • Outch! I added confusion instead of bringing some light here. First, i was not the one asking the question. Second, when i read the first line, the POSReady version was not specified and I missed the 2009 hint further down. So, talking about success with POSReady 7 here was off topic.
