Hello iraq it,

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

Can you show us any error messages? You can use the snipping tool for this. Info here if needed: How to use the Snipping Tool in Vista - Vista Forums

Have you tried installing VPC in compatibility mode for Vista? Info here: Compatibility Mode

I dont have Windows Vista so snipping tool is not vaild, I have Windows XP SP2.

Compatibility is not working, usually most of the programs stop installing and a message said that Microsoft is connecting to the Internet to solve the problem and nothing happened.

I search for an update for Virtual PC 2007 and firefox to run on Windows 7 but I didnt find.

Any help please?

Thanks,

Well which is it? Are you trying to install it on XP or Win 7? I have used VPC 07 on all 3 OS without issues.

The snipping tool is present in windows 7, you can use it to show us a screen shot of the error message you encounter when trying to install the app.

Firefox has no issue running in windows 7.

Did you choose the correct version? meaning 32 vs 64 bit? I see you are getting the same issue with Firefox, I would do another OS install, did you upgrade or do a full clean install?

Yes, its 32-bit version and I just make sure from that from the device manager.

Its clean install and not upgrade for Windows XP SP2, is it preferable to be Upgrade?

I just installed Acrobat reader, Yahoo IM, Nod32 but still problem with FF, VPC and other software!

Any suggestions?

No do not upgrade from XP, I don't think it's even possible anyway. What is bothering me is that FF isn't working.

Worse case, just re-install Win7 (update it) and install FF and VP first. That will rule out anything else.
