Windows 7: Optimizing VPC.exe

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Optimizing VPC.exe

I kind of stuck with one VPC.exe process, executing all my running virtual PCs! I would very much like to run multiple applications on different virtual PCs at the same time, but the VPC process is never using more than one CPU in my system. Isnt there a way to tweak this?

I'm assuming Windows Virtual PC calls itself vpc.exe. If so, then unfortunately there wouldn't be a way to make it use more CPUs as the VMs can only take advantage and see only one CPU/Core.

With VMwareWorkstation, you can run multiple operating systems at the same time. I dunno if this might be true for VPC or VirtualBox (or VMWare Player, for that matter).

thanks... but sad. I would have been nice, if each virtual PC got its own process.
