Windows Virtual PC has stopped working... but not really. Debug ideas
I run VPC on my laptop for legacy application reasons. It's run fine for months and months. Full device integration, it has actually been superb (surprisingly so). Anyway, about a month ago it started this weird thing when I tried to launch it: "Windows Virtual PC has stopped working" and it goes out to try and find a solution.
At this point, if I look at the task manager, I see vpc.exe running. If I then attempt to launch it again, it immediately comes up with the Xp window, ready for business.
Any suggestions as to how I can track down the issue?

I just went through the discussion of this, and like the original poster, it came in through automatic updates. I have to laugh sometimes at Microsoft answers. I know they have their hands full, but really, checking for software conflicts in safe mode? The #1 reason I have new software is from Windows Update.
So, I've uninstalled this update, and we'll see if things get better.
Thanks for the pointer.
