How install Windows virtual PC on a Windows 7 platform

Maybe it's just me - but I can't find any clear instructions, step by step, on how to install Windows Virtual PC on a Windows 7 platform. Can anybody help please?

Hello Nisko,

This may help. It's basically the same, but also includes how to create a virtual machine with Windows Virtual PC as well. See the related tutorial links at the bottom to see if they may be able to help further.

Thanks - now I know that I don't have the hardware to support virtualization.

However, you can install and run XP Mode also on systems with no support for hardware virtualization. Go to Virtual PC download page, download and install all three files (Virtual PC, XP Mode and XP Mode update).
