I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have Vista Business with SP1 installed on my T61 Laptop (see my computer Specs in the little computer icon next to my name)

I have 1 Virtual PC running with 512 MB RAM allocated to it. this VM is running Microsoft Server 2003 R2. the problem is that its very choppy and slow. I had Virtual PC 2007 installed on this same system, with out the service pack 1 on the host OS and it ran fine.
In both cases the Virtual PC tools were installed

Is this an issue with Vista Service Pack 1, or is there some setting in the VM that i need to set?

I have a Virtual PC running Windows XP and I changed the Network Adapter to use my home network to download an ISO image for VS2010. That worked but now when I start my Virtual PC and go to My Computer it reads my host PC's C drive and not the Virtual PC's C drive. Can anyone help me to 'reset' my Virtual PC to use the virtual C drive again? I found this problem when I went to mount the ISO image to install VS2010 that the virtual C drive icon was looking at my host C drive and not the virtual C drive.

There's some OLD programs from when I was a kid that I'd like to run. So, I got Microsoft's Virtual PC 2007...
My host system is a Toshiba A-105 Satellite, XP Media Center 1BG ram.
The virtual environment I created for DOS is a 700MB virtual hard drive with 64Mb ram.

So, the first set up I have I installed FreeDos. Install went fine, and it seems to be working great. No set up required for my sound, mouse, or DVD drive. But one of the programs I want to run produces this error message:
"An internal virtual machine error (3) has occurred.
The virtual machine will now reset."
Not sure what to do with this, and the searches I have done seem a little sketchy.

So, using the same virtual environment as described above, I borrowed an old 5.25" drive and set up DOS-6. Install worked GREAT. But, it's been like 12-14 years since I have used DOS. And while I remember all the basic commands, I have forgotten how to set my the CD-ROM, sound, etc.....

Anyone have any ideas on where I need to go from here? If there's a way around that virtual error using freedos, that's the way I'd rather proceed as it auto detects everything.
Thank you!

I've installed MS Virtual PC 2007 on a system running Vista Home Premium. I need to run Quickbooks 2005 and it won't even install on Vista. Someone on the Quickbooks forum suggested using XP on a virtual PC.

Virtual PC installs but I get error messages about it not being compatible with my OS. When I start it it launches ok and finds the mac address and GUID. It looks for the DHCP but can't find it. I then get the error message.... Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks.
 

A:Virtual PC 2007

VPC is not tested on the Vista Home platforms, but it should work.

Once you install VPC, you then have to install XP in the virtual machine you created, that's what the boot prompt is for. You can capture the CD/DVD drive and boot the VPC session from the XP media and do the installation.

Hi All

I am trying to figure out how to install additions on my virtual pc so I can shared folders from my host computer. Running Vista Home Premium for host and Win 2K in virtual pc. One step I found says to click on Action tab and the install update additions. I do not have that option under action tab. I have; start, pause, reset, remove, settings and properties. Pause & reset are grayed out. I have been to Microsoft's website trying to find answers without any luck. Anyone run into this problem?

Thanks, Doug

You need to be running the Virtual PC, in your case Win 2K, to install Additions.

I have just started playing around with MS Virtual PC 2007. It seems like a cool way to have other OS's "on hand" without having to do a true install.

I installed Win98 on one virtual machine, but had trouble updating it through Windows Update. The info on the error indicated that it may be a firewall setting. The PC I am running VPC on only uses Windows Firewall, but is connected to an NAT router. I tried adding VPC to the WF exceptions, but that did not help.

Any ideas?

What kind of security issues does one have to worry about while on the net on a VPC session? Or is that the beauty of it, that it is self contained?

I would like to have a comletely updated install of Win98 on a virtual machine just for old times sake, and a lightweight Linux distro such as Xubuntu.

Thanks,

PK
 

A:MS Virtual PC 2007

Microsoft doesn't support Win98 any longer do they? I think that means no updates, virtual PC or not.

Virtual PC is sandboxed as long as you don't tie into any real-time part of the computer that can transfer an infection.

A:Virtual Pc 2007

Yes it does take some of your hard drive space - Try looking through My Documents for something like My Virtual Machines. In that folder will be the file that your VM runs from (and it's size will be the amount of hard drive space that it's taking up).

You can change the sizes through the settings when your first open Virtual PC 2007.

Hello
I am preparing to take the MCITP Pro exam in a few months. I am using the MS Press Study Guide for the 70-621 exam to prepare for the exam. One of the requirements for preparing for the exam with this book is setting up a lab on my pc using VPC 2007. The author recommends setting up 3 virtual pcs (2 XP Pros, 1 2003 Server & 1 Vista).
My OS is Vista. I have a ASUS M2A-VM motherboard w/integrated X1250 graphics (128MB-256MB). I have 1gig of RAM (128 for graphics).
The author recommends 2gigs of RAM for the VPC lab. I would like to go with 4gigs to stay on the safe side - I know Vista will not utilize all of it. As a matter of fact my pc only uses about half of the 1gig.
My question is how much RAM should I add if I use 4 -6 OS with VPC 2007?
Also, can I set up a VPC on an external drive?

Thanks,
Bob

A:How much RAM for Virtual PC 2007

Hi, you will get away with 2gb Ram. If you have the money you can go to 4 gb, though it will not be fully utilised 32 bit systems are limited typically the max available is 3.25 gb. 2003 Server will require you to set available ram to 1024 so you definitely need more then the 1gb you now have I would say Vista is much happier with 2gb then 1. Here is a good tutorial on VPC:-

Sorry yes you can set it up on an external drive DO not put it on "C" (your main windows drive) will run like a draft horse.

To be removed, the virtual machine must be closed or in a saved state. When you remove a virtual machine, it is only removed from the list of available virtual machines. The virtual machine files, including the virtual machine configuration (.vmc) file and virtual hard disk (.vhd) file, are not deleted or changed when you remove a virtual machine." microsoft's website dosen't offer anything else (imagine that) nor can i find any info from google. is removing the machine from the console and deleting the .vhd and.vmc files sufficient? where do they reside?

thanks

A:virtual pc 2007

Deleting the .vmc and .vhd files are sufficient to remove the virtual machine from your computer (though nothing is ever really, really gone for good.)The files ought to be found in the My Virtual Machines folder in your My Documents (or simply Documents in Vista) folder.

This would be really useful to test run applications for spyware/viruses before I install them on my main machine. If I execute all files on the virtual machine, can anything "migrate" to the physical host machine?

And, let's say the Virtual HDD has an OS that is infested with (exaggeration) millions of viruses and spyware. Won't any good anti-virus scanner see the Virtual HDD (.vhd) file as being infected?

it seems to good to be true and I don't want to end up doing something stupid if the virtual machine is not 100% separate from my physical machine.

First, you've attached a DirectX "DxDig.txt", which as exactly nothing to do with networking.

Second, have you set the Virtual Machine to have a network adapter, which in turn should be set to Shared Networking. From there, you should be able to adjust the network connection settings in the virtual OS just as you would any other "real" computer network settings...

VPC is not meant for gaming. It uses a generic set of hardware not your host computer's actual hardware. You could try allocating more RAM, but if this game has specific hardware requirements, then I doubt it'll work in that environment.

I've been using VPC 2007 for quite some time, with only a few issues here and there. Recently, however, 2 error messages flashed on the screen and it immediately shut down before I could read what they were. When I tried start it back up, it stops at a blank screen with a blinking cursor. It takes no input whatsoever, and stops right after the normal flash of text on the screen that it's supposed to do on startup. There were no changes to the configuration, and there's no error message at all.

Also, it is most likely a problem with the virtual disk, as using a new disk with no OS works.

EDIT: I created a new virtual disk, and installed an OS on it, and am able to retrieve all of the data from the problem disk with no problems. However, I can't boot from it. So the disk wasn't corrupted, but for some reason virtual pc can't boot it.
 

A:Virtual PC 2007 not loading OS

I use Vmware. What I do to avoid this problem is to store any "must have" data on another partition and I keep a backup copy of the VM.

With VMware, the entire virtual disk and the OS installed on it are contained in a folder, it's a simple matter to create a backup folder and copy/paste the contents of the original folder. This not only protects against the VM becoming unbootable, but also anything else that goes wrong. It's faster to restore a backup copy of the VM than it is to spend time actually fixing any little thing that goes wrong.

I'm trying to restore a physical image of an XP machine to a VPC session (P2V - Physical to Virtual). I've seen a few methods to do this, but I haven't had any luck getting them to work, including a method that was posted in another thread on this site.
VPC 2004 had a straight forward way for allowing VM Additions to work on a DOS based VPC session. But it looks like VPC 2007 no longer supports this method as stated in the Help, but the VMAdditions.iso file included with VPC 2007 does contain the fshare.exe utility that is supposed to allow you to map a drive from the DOS VPC to the host computer...I just can't get it to run on the VPC session...

I used PQI to create my XP physical image and would like to use it to restore the image to my VPC session. Here's the sequence of steps I need to perform:
- Launch VPC from a bootable DOS CD that also contains PQI
- Format the C: drive of the VPC session to match the HD space of my image
- Somehow, map a drive to where my XP PWI image is located
- Run PQI within the VPC session
- Restore the XP image from the mapped drive location

Any help or alternate methods would be appreciated.

Hi everyone,

I have a strange little quirk I ran into that maybe one of you may know something about with Virtual PC 2007 SP1. I have Vista 64 bit Ultimate w/SP1 installed as the host computer. If I use the 32 bit Vista Ultimate as a Virtual Machine (VM), I have no problems with the network connection or anything else in the VM. If I use the 32 bit Vista Home Premium as a VM, everything works fine except the network connection in the VM. The settings are the same on both.

I wanted to use Home Premium since it is the only one that I have a spare product key number for.

Does anyone know of a reason why the network connection will not work with the Home Premium edition over the Ultimate with the exact same VM settings?

I hope it's not simply because I have Ultimate installed as the host.

Thank you for any thoughts,

Hi Shawn,

A couple of things that might help you. Firstly, SP1 for VPC2007 is available, dated 5/15/2008, and it might fix the bug you are experiencing (if you haven't already got this update). Secondly, here is a link to the VPC2007 community support pages from Microsoft entitled 'Discussions in Virtual PC for Windows'. I know that this link appears as 'Windows XP Newsgroups', but that is where they have located this particular forum. Have a browse through and see if there is anything there.

I have a VHD file that I use for a windows installation. The problem is that it's a lot bigger than it should be. Windows says that it's using 3 GB. The actual file is 10 GB. I tried compressing it, but it made no difference. It's supposedly a dynamically sized drive.

Virtual pc says its dynamic meaning if you need more than 10.0g it will grow as needed. I think the default when you first install it is 10 gig in which you are prob only using 3.0.

Hello everyone,

I could find a better place for this other then for the "guest OS" I'm trying to install. The host pc is Windows Server 2003 Enterprise at a datacenter. The specs are :

CPU :AMD X2 (Dual Core) 4200+ (2 X 2.2GHz) (East Coast D.C.) (West Coast D.C.) Data Center:East Coast USA RAM :4096 MB Bandwidth :10 mbps unmetered (~3200GB) (East Coast D.C.) Disk Drives:2 X 500 GB SATA Raid:None Operating System:Windows Enterprise (East Coast D.C.) (West Coast D.C.) Control Panel :None~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The "guest OS" that I installed was Windows XP Pro. Since it has the features to open certain files but Server 2003 can't. But as soon as I tried to install XP Pro it lagged pretty bad I couldn't use the mouse had to use the keyboard to navigate the installation. Then as soon as I was in the desktop after install. I installed the additions and it fix the mouse a little bit but it lags so much. That at a point it was 5-20seconds for the start button to open up. The same thing for Windows Explorer it was so hard but I thought it was because I remoted into the Server 2003 and it was in a way remoted into XP Pro virtual pc. So is it because Server 2003 Enterprise or anything. I see that Server 2003 Standard is supported so I would think that Enterprise is supported no?

Any help would be AWESOME! Thanks again

Aaron

Hi there,

last week I discovered VPC and it works like a charm.

However, _printing_ from MS-DOS, or even Borland DBASE IV directly, is still a feat waiting to be accomplished.

Ideally, I would like to _print_ to CutePDF (to get a PDF); this basically amounts to the same thing as being able to print to any of the printers and use the printing drivers installed on Windows XP.

Any help & ideas much appreciated.

MS Virtual PC 2007 - This seems to have been an issue for a long while but I've yet to find a solution after a couple of days of googling.

My problem is that the Virtual Machine Network Services driver does not seem to install. I'm running XP pro sp3 on a dell d630 using a Dell Wireless 1395 WLAN Mini-Card.

I downloaded and installed VPC2007 - but it didn't pick up my network services. I found out that it was the VM Network Services driver. So I've uninstalled/rebooted/re-installed - no joy. Uninstalled VPC 2007/rebooted/re installed - no joy. I've tried all combinations of uninstall/reboot/reinstall/uinstall driver/re boot etc with no success.

I've checked the Dell site for the latest Nic drivers with uninstall and re-install/reboot of VPC 2007 / Drivers in all the combinations - no joy.

Basically no matter what I do, when I look at the properties for the Virtual Machine Network Services Properties all the details are blank. I can't find an answer anywhere, every thread seems to end when someone posts that they have blank properties.

So any ideas or help would be appreciated

Cheers

Steve

I have a problem with Virtual PC 2007. I?m running Vista Home Premium as a host, and VPC was working flawlessly, even though the OS is ?not supported.? Now I can?t open VPC. When I click on the desktop icon (double left click or right click-open) or on the Start/All Programs section, the VPC logo briefly appears on the desktop and disappears, and a small icon is on the taskbar. When I check Windows Task Master, Virtual PC Console is running. When I scroll over the Virtual PC Console tab on the taskbar, a small screen appears above the icon. Unfortunately, when I double click on the taskbar icon, the icon disappears, and Virtual PC is no longer shown as running in Task Master. If I right click on the taskbar icon, ?Maximize? is grayed out.

The problem began after I used the computer on battery (I usually only use it on AC power). I put the host system to sleep a few times with VPC 2007 running.

My computer is an HP dv9700, and the guest OS is XP Pro.

Does anyone have any idea how I can restore VPC 2007? I?m willing to reinstall VPC, but how can I do it without setting up another 10-gig patrician?


(There were a couple of old forum threads on this topic, but they were closed, and the links didn't work.)


Thank you!

A:Virtual PC 2007 on taskbar not on desktop

I found a solution, and I thought if somebody else had the same problem it would be useful for them to know the solution.

The key is the options.xml file. (To find it, search the name, but you have to do an advanced search because it's a hidden file.)

Open the file in Word, and look at the "left position" and "top position;" mine were some seven or eight digits. I changed the settings to 429 left and 148 top, and Virtual PC 2007 displayed correctly.

Hope this helps somebody.

Regards,

Hello,

I have Vista Ultimate and I have installed MS Virtual PC 2007. I am trying to install a version of XP on a virtual PC so that I can run some older software. When I try to run the setup disk, I get past the format utility and then Vista re-boots and I am stuck. Any help getting past this point in the XP setup would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Hi all!

Ok, I have a freaky problem with MS's Virtual PC 2007 SP1. I have googled this but I have not found an answer.

I have had it installed for some time, and I have used it on my current laptop once. This time I created a new virtual machine with the same settings and location as always, but when I clicked to run the virtual machine, my HOST machine got the BSOD. Here is some info I got from the BSOD:

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

STOP: 0x000000D1 (0xE1F74000, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xAA140CC6)

I have heard of this type of BSOD appearing in the virtual machine, but not on the host. Every time I have to turn off the laptop and restart it.

Can anyone help with this, I kinda NEED to use Virtual PC for work...
Thanks!

i have new laptop with vista home premium installed. My old system had XP and I used a audio editing product call Cooledit Pro 2. I use it constantly and need it on my new laptop.

However, when I tried to intsall CE pro in vista, it fails to install as there are multiple missing files. Therefore I decided to install VPC 2007 and then XP Pro with CE Pro.

However, once all is installed, the audio quality is horrible. It cuts in and out constantly. When I installed VPC it did warned me that Vista Home Premium was not supported but I found several forums indicating that it worked fine anyways, and the install, once I clicked ok to the warning message, went fine.

I have installed all the latest audio drivers, bios updates, etc and I asssigned 1 GB of RAM to the winXP o/s. Still the trouble continues.

Any thoughts?

A:Virtual PC 2007 and audio troubles

It's probably a combination of factors. The operating system isn't supported (I'm surprised VPC installed), you're using virtual hardware not the actual physical hardware, not enough resources, etc. A dual boot system might be a better choice in this case.
