Very nice tutorial.
I'm setting up a brand new 7 Pro machine, and made a mistake installing virtual XP machine in a test account. And wasting a security suite license if I recreate under the good account.
So, I'm trying to move this machine from the test account.
Stopped the machine, copied the "Virtual Machines" folder itself to a backup unit. But only .vhd, .vmc and .vmc.vpcbackup are visible, no vmcx file, although it said "4 files copied" ?
So I opened Start Menu "Windows Virtual PC", and copied .vmcx by right click > copy.
Logged to the good account, copied and renamed the 4 files to "Virtual Machines" folder, and did the updates to .vmx and .vmcx.
Opening Start Menu "Windows Virtual PC" didn't show the machine ?
So, created a new one, browsing to the copied .vhd file to use it.
Well, it works,
although copy / paste was not active at 1st boot. I now have a true clone of the VM.
- Virtual applications start successfully
- Antivirus software successfully updates.
(I can resize window)
- this machine does'nt appear in Windows Virtual PC menu, although the virtual applications are there. How can I add it ? (Seems to be just a shortcut to add, but ...)
- why can't I see any .vmcx file in explorer, only in Virtual PC window ?
- have I missed something that could cause problems later ?
