Windows 7: Windows Virtual PC Floppy Script

Windows Virtual PC Floppy Script

Hello:

I wrote a Powershell script for using floppies in the latest version of Virtual PC and would like feedback/suggestions for improvement. Running the script gives a dialog box and GUI for attaching physical or floppy images, as an alternative to typing long paths and commands. I'm not sure how many people are interested in running pre-XP OSes, but I was somewhat disappointed that floppy support was removed from the menu in the latest version of VPC.

The script is on this webpage (just getting started). Feel free to modify the script to make it better.

Thanks,

Derek

The controller also detects as a controller and works fine, but it also thinks it's a floppy drive. Which is very odd. Any reason this might happen?
