Windows Virtual PC (Windows 7 Professional) DEL key RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I press the delete key inside the virtual pc it prompts me with if I want to lock the pc. Why does it do this? I have a Windows XP Professional running inside the Windows Virtual PC.

  • Hi,


    In general, the keyboard works the same for a virtual machine as it does for a physical computer. regarding your issue, this could be caused by the software conflicts.


    For a test, you could boot Windows 7 into clean boot mode to check if this issue persists.


    Meanwhile, I suggest you uninstall the keyboard in device manager in XP mode.


    If this issue persists, I could reinstall Windows XP Mode to fix this issue:


    Remove Windows XP Mode, virtual machines, or Windows Virtual PC
