Virtual PC 2007 released - freeware
« on: February 20, 2007, 10:02:54 AM »
Microsoft released Virtual PC 2007.  Probably the most important change is that it supports Vista as a host and a guest OS.  It also has improved support for multi-monitor systems (but the virtual machines still support only a single monitor).

It's free:  http://www.microsoft...rtualpc/default.mspx

In my view, everyone should have this installed, unless you happen to own VMWare.

See my review of virtual machine tools to see why it's so useful.  Don't be distracted by my love of VMWare - VirtualPC is an excellent product and given that it is free, it's a wonderful addition to everyone's toolset, especially if you do a lot of software testing.  :up:

The PM for Virtual PC at Microsoft often blogs about his experiences running old games under VPC:
