Windows 7 Virtual PC installs but does not run RRS feed

  • Question

  • Virtual PC installed without any errors, but when clicked to run, I get an hourglass then nothing. VPC.exe shows up as a process, but no window?  I have uninstalled both VPC and XP mode, rebooted and re-installed twice, no difference?

    Window 7 SP1 64 bit

  • WVPC presents as a shell window rather than as a program.  Do you see the red and blue screen-on-a-screen icon on your taskbar?
