    Hi All,

    I am presently (still) using the Win 7 evaluation copy (build 7100) and am attempting to install the XP Virtual Mode.

    As per the microsoft virtual pc page I have run the compatibity detection tool and it confirms that "This computer is configured with hardware-assisted virtualization.

    I then download the two files given in the links "Download XP Mode" and "Windows Virtual PC".

    The first file (WindowsXPMode_en-us.exe) is installed without error but when I run the second dowloaded file (Windows6.1-KB958559-x64.msu), I receive the error "The update is not applicable to your computer".

    Thinking that perhaps it had already been installed, I then looked for the Windows XP Mode shortcut in my Start menu but it does not appear.

    Has anyone had this issue before or am I missing something really obvious (that is possible!)

    Many thanks

    I believe that I have found the cause of the problem...apparently I must have the paid version of Win 7.
