Windows 7: Microsoft Virtual PC 2007? (x86)

Microsoft Virtual PC 2007? (x86)

So I just tried to install MS VPC 07, and it seemed successful. I then shut down my computer, but it hung on "Shutting down...". I finally had to manually shut it off, and then I booted back up to look for a solution. But I couldn't connect to my wireless network. I clicked the "Connect to a network" button, and nothing happened. I couldn't even view the list of in-range wireless networks. So I shut down again, and it hung again. I shut it off manually. I then rebooted, and tried to uninstall MS VPC 07. The uninstall hung. I then canceled it, and did a system restore. I tried shutting down, and it didn't hang. I could then connect to my wireless network. I tried to reinstall MS VPC 07, and the same thing happened. I'm now thinking I should just ditch MS VPC, and go find some other 3rd party VPC client. Unless of course, there's a way I can fix this. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks...

Don't know why it wouldn't install. Do you have a restore point before the first install attempt. If so this may help. System Restore VPC should work. Others are using it.

I use VBox. VirtualBox

There's no problem installing it. Shortly after I posted this, I downloaded and installed VirtualBox. It did the same exact thing. I had to system restore again.

Does your CPU support hardware virtualization. That may need to be turned on in the bios. There is an app here to check. List of Intel Processors that support XPMode

According to SecurAble -


Also, in case you didn't know what I mean...

It stays like that ^ and when I click it, nothing happens. Therefore, I have no internet connection.

Even though your CPU supports virtualization, it must be BIOS enabled. Often the default position, IF your BIOS supports it is disabled.

That said, I installed Sun VBox without first BIOS enabling virtualization, so that may only be a requirement for MS VPC.

My needs are simple (I don't need to run multiple other OSs in my virtual machine) and VBox crashed hard repeatedly over USB issues, so XPMode works fine for me (so far). More seamlessly integrated also IMO.

I failed to mention, I'm not using this for XP mode. I actually just want to test a couple different OS's. I can still use virtualization. I fixed the shutdown hang, and now the only problem is the network connectivity. I figure I'll just install VirtualBox without the network config. Thanks for the help anyway.

I've heard that you should still enable virtualization even though you don't have to with VBox or VMware because it makes it faster though I'm not sure if the crashes had anything to do with it.

No, I read elsewhere that the latest version of Sun VBox has a major USB issue. It ran fine for me on the old BIOS, but since I needed the USB to work, I didn't experiment further with it. So far, XPMode does all I need.
