I'm a bit confused.

This is how it goes.


1. Go to the following website; Download Windows XP Mode

2. Select your version of Windows as well as your language.

3. Click the 'Windows XP Mode' button. It will then launch a popup asking for validation, which will require you to run a file (one time only) to install a package.

4. Refresh the page and do steps 1 - 3 again, this time step 3 will give you an actual download.

5. After that, click the 'Windows Virtual PC' button and download that.

6. When that finishes, click the 'XP Mode Update' button and download that file.

Install them in the order you receive them. It should work fine.

Never heard that installing Virtual PC "fries" other virtual machines. I'm using VirtualBox, VMWare and Virtual PC in "peaceful harmony", never had any problems installing and using these three. I'm sorry to say but I suspect a user error.

There are a lot of tips and tricks to speed up virtual machines, I have no complaints; my Virtual PC machines run as I'd like them to run.

Just curious, but why did you even need 15 Operating Systems? I cannot see anyone aside from Developers and whatnot having a need for that many, and even then; thats still a lot to have.
