    Hi all :)!

    Hi have a problem that it is stalking me.

    I have a machine with Windows 7 Professional with Virtual PC installed, the last time I used it (with XP Mode) it worked perfectly, but now when I execute Virtual PC nothing happens, but the process shows up in the task manager.

    The same thing happened to me a few months ago (with 7 Ultimate), and the solution was reinstalling windows.

    Already tried system restore and reinstalling Virtual PC, both did not work.

    What could it be?

    Thanks :)

    Do some searching. I just read about using XP mode on Home Premium edition using VMware player which is free.

    Hi and welcome to the forums.




    Check MS Virtual PC in the icon tray area.

    Ok, I fixed it :).

    Removed some applications on msconfig and now it works :).

    For those who may have the same problem, I removed from startup Daemon tools, some HP Printer software, Java, Adobe Reader, webcam and mouse software.
