Windows 7: Windows Virtual PC problem

Windows Virtual PC problem

Hello there

When I go to upgrade the integration components I'm met with a THE D:/SETUP.EXE file expects a newer version of Windows. Upgrade your Windows version.

This wouldn't be such a problem if I need this to share my windows 7 folders. I do need to do that, right? I mean, when I checked on everything for 'integration features' under settings and rebooted virtual PC I still could not see anything.

Can anybody PLEASE help me?

Here, I even added a nifty recording to show you what I'm talking about. Please watch through it, thanks!

Try the Virtual PC 2004 or 2007 Additions instead of the ones with VPC for Windows 7 to work with Windows 98.

Hmm can I can set up a ftp server on the host and log into it from the virtual machine?

Can I do this in windows 98? And if so, any links on how i'd go about doing so?

Also somebody said this, but I cant understand what the hell he's sainy:

Have you tried creating a network and having your computer that you are using the VM on?
That's what I did with mine, and you see your computer as another PC on a network and you can access all the files and folders (permitting that you allow others in the network to access those files).
