Hello BSM and welcome to the SevenForums.

Even you download and install Virtual PC 64-bit version, you can only run 32-bit guests on it. Windows Server 2008 with Hyper-V is to my knowledge the only Microsoft Virtual Environment where you can run 64-bit guest OS or software.

You need Sun VirtualBox or WMWare to run 64-bit OS or software on a virtual machine.

BTW, I forgot to tell you about the new Virtual PC and Virtual XP Mode. Nothing wrong with VPC 2007, but if you want you can download the latest version of VPC here. From the same site you can download Virtual XP Mode.

Kari is right. Not 64-bit guests on any MS Hypervisor except for HyperV and HyperV R2

Oh, I might add that SBS 2008 is only 64 bit because it contains Exchange 2007, which is only available in 64 bit.

VS 2008 & SQL Server 2008 compatibility
While I'm still stabilising the overclock on my PC, can I ask if anyone has installed Visual Studio 2008 & SQL Server 2008 on Windows 7 x64 7600? If you do get any hiccups during install but manage to install it, does it run alright? Any problems? I'm interested in C# and ASP.NET development only....

Non-Evaluation copy?
When i installed 7600-1385 i run "winver" and there is nothing stating its an evaluation copy, and it has no expiration date. Is this an "unlimited build"? :p
