Windows 7 virtual pc - 64 bit support


  • Hi,

    I have installed Windows 7 (64bit) on my  laptop. I wanted to install sharepoint 2010 beta on a virtual pc environment. I found that Windows Virtual PC does not support it 64 bit Guest OS to be installed ? Is there any thing that I have overlooked  or  does Virtual PC on windows 7  lack support of 64 bit Guest OS ??

    Any help will be greatly appreciated

  • Hi Mohan,
    Virtual Pc 2007 does not support 64-bit guests. For now, you can use some other virtualization software (ie. VirtualBox) to test SP2010.
