  • Hi,

    Based on my research, please try the following:

    1. Try last known good configuration and see how it works.

    2. Remove the Windows XP Mode.vsv file under %systemdrive%\Users\<username>\ AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Virtual PC\Virtual Machines.

    If issue persists, I’m afraid that you may need to reinstall  Windows XP Mode.

    Hope this helps.
