Console: VM Could Not Be Found RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm running VPC 2007 SP1 under Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit.  Each time I start the console, I get the error "At least one virtual machine added to the Virtual PC Console could not be found.  Make sure each virtual machine's .vmc file has not been moved or deleted.  Choose Remove to prevent Virtual PC from checking for these virtual machines while starting up."

    Since I have about 32 VMs, it would be a real pain to have to manually check each one, and the error message doesn't give any hints as to what's missing.  Is there a log file somewhere that will tell me what's missing?

  • No log, but you could:
    1. copy all the shortcuts out and save somewhere else
    2. start VPC have it remove the missing VMs
    3. compare the 2 lists of shortcuts
    4. locate the missing VM, restore it to it's original location and
    then copy the shortcut back
